Ana at The Well Appointed Desk recently did an excellent and thorough review of the Rhodia Heritage Book Block notebook with the Checkered cover. Thank you so much for your wonderful review Ana!
Some things she liked: the paper, of course. After her pen test, she noted:

The Heritage Collection will be a favorite too. It doesn’t feel as precious or pricey as a webnotebook or Habana and is a little bit larger in size so it may be a notebook to consider. The softcover might also make it more appealing for some.

The composition-book size is great: larger than A5/ 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 so you have more writing space, but still very light so you can carry it around. The soft cover also keeps the book lightweight, and the cover designs are so gorgeous I want to collect them all!
The Rhodia Heritage notebooks come with the book block binding like this:
Or with sewn spines and fewer pages for a thinner book:
