Stories from real people, real artists. Read what they have to say about our fine art tools, designed by artists, for artists.
A notebook that has really cheered up my afternoon! The cover is so soft, pages have a good weight and really nicely bound. The little red dragonflies on the page edge is such a pretty design and with a lovely colour scheme. This is the second item I've had from this company.
The design is gorgeous. The beautiful endpapers really lend a sense of elegance. The cover is soft and flexible and sturdy. The notebook lies flat when opened which is nice, and if you wanted you can also fold it in half for easier note taking. I appreciate the numbered pages and the index in the front. Overall I think the quality is quite nice and it seems to have been designed quite thoughtfully
The ZenArt journal is exactly what I was hoping for in creating zentangle art. I love the fact it has a Z on the cover. The feel of the faux leather is wonderful and enhances the quality IMO. The dragonfly details on the end pages and page edges are a nice touch, too. This feels like a substantial and quality journal.

Frequently Asked Questions
A dotted journal is suitable for bullet journaling – a method of personal organization developed by Ryder Carroll. The method organizes schedules, to-do lists, significant events, milestones and other organizational tasks in a single journal.
However, our dotted journal is designed in an open-minded way, to allow you to choose which system to use (or not). Having four index pages and numbers on each page, continuous lines of dots across the pages, you can express yourself creatively.
Good question! Our Modernista series dotted journals are pure joy for your aesthetical and organizing buds. They are all designed by our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, and are very unique. Each of them has a splash of color inside and outside, and even on the edges. The traditional Japanese design on the edges and end-papers, unique for each journal color-variation, has a positive meaning, and is a metaphor and our good wish to you.
Designed to make organizing on-the-go easier, each dotted journal is meticulously handcrafted using recyclable materials, with perfectly aligned dotted grids (5mm spacing) across both pages, and no lines to ruin your bullets but small dots to help you organize. Our dotted journal also features a 180° lay-flat spine that stays open so you can organize at ease.
This paper is amazing! Our latest journals have thicker paper of 120 gsm – as many of you requested. It has the same satin-smooth surface, it's acid-free, FSC certified, ink-proof and won't create feathering if you use a fountain pen, or similar. Each journal has 160 pages or 80 sheets of dotted ivory paper that won't reflect light in your eyes in the way ordinary white papers might.
Acid-free means that the pH level of the paper is 7.0 (neutral) or higher (alkaline). In general, acid-free papers are expected to last for decades under normal storage conditions. Don't worry; it's still biodegradable.
FSC is an acronym for the Forest Stewardship Council®, which is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC system provides an assurance that products such as wood and paper have been harvested in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
Our journals are encased in a vivid-colored faux leather-bound cover that is soft and smooth, scratch-resistant, flexible and vegan.
Our journals are perfect for daily journaling, art journaling and daily planning. The 120 gsm acid-free paper is durable enough for ink, markers, glue and sticky tapes, rough erasing, shading or art journaling. Your options are endless. You can consider journaling ideas as therapy .

It can be frustrating to shop for notebooks and journals online. You are never certain what you are buying until it arrives and esults can be quite mixed. I am very pleased to say these notebooks are excellent. Well put together, flexible spines, soft yet durable cover, and most importantly - nice heavyweight paper. All for a price that makes them accessible. Very pleased with this product and think these will be my go to notebooks for the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your review. It's reviews such as yours that really help us understand what our customers love about our products but also where we might improve. Please don't hesitate to message us for anything. -Ryan, ZenART Supplies
I recently got into bullet Journaling and bought this journal for that. Nice durable and flexible cover and several great features: two ribbon page markers, pocket inside back cover, pre-numbered pages, and pages set aside for table of contents. I also LOVE the dragonfly pattern on the outside of the pages. Great value, would buy again.
Hi Alexandra! Wow, we were blown away by your positive words, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review. - Ryan
I love the ZenArt dot journals. This is the 8th one I have bought and they quickly become my favourite journal by far. I love everything about them - the size and colour/style. But also the quality of the paper. I use them for everything - my daily journalling, my client notes, my business notes, and for my various learning and development programmes. Other 'premium' products out there don't compare in my view. I'll be sticking with ZenART 🧡🌟
A huge thank you for taking the time to spend such nice words about our Dotted Journal. It really makes us so happy when people write a product review for us because it lets us know if we're doing great or if we need to improve in areas that we can. We're so glad you love our journal and this is your favorite by far.

Beautiful quality. Perfect for bullet journaling.
I started using these notebooks for work, then journals. I can never go back! They are the best. They look and feel fantastic but also lay flat so they're hyper functional too. Top marks!
I love everything about my new journal - the colour and softness of the cover the dotted paper giving me structure and freedom the unique pattern around the edges and the handy pocket at the back. Live it!
I love this book, it’s soft feel, smooth paper etc. I will definitely buy again
Per fare il Bullet Journal mi sono trovata benissimo con questo formato. I pennarelli non passano la pagina.
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I love this notebook because it's bendable, a good weight, and super cute. The spine has designs on it (mine is purple cranes) which is a cute touch. I like how soft the cover material is, but the elastic band makes an indent in the leather (but it's not a problem functionally at all). The first few pages are a table of contents so it's great for folks who do bullet journaling, but I just use it as a general sketch book/list/design log. The dots on each page are unobtrusive enough to sketch & visible enough to act as lines for script. Great gift!
Love this notebook! Great quality and I can see the dots better than some. Beautiful!
