Tomoe River Paper Writing Pad A4 Zoom Tomoe River Paper Writing Pad A4

Tomoe River paper first started life as a lightweight printing stock paper for high-quality catalogues and mailings where a high page count is required, but the paper quality needs to be high to convey the feel of a quality brochure. As Tomoe River is a super-lightweight 52gsm, one sheet weighs a negligible 3.24 grams - that's over a third lighter than a single sheet of standard 80gsm copier paper. When posting catalogues, this is an obvious advantage: you can post a catalogue with more pages for less money. But where do fountain pens come into all this? Well, someone, somewhere, thought the paper felt nice to the touch (it does - silky smooth) and thought they'd try using it as writing paper. To their surprise, as well as the surprise of the paper makers themselves, it performed amazingly well with fountain pens and has become something of a cult product ever since.

The qualities that make this paper ideal for posted brochures are also qualities fountain pen users look for in their paper. Despite its apparent fragility, the paper has an uncanny ability: it doesn't feather like most other lightweight papers seem to. Written lines stay as crisp as the moment you wrote them, even, we’re told, when using the most feathery inks available. This lack of feathering doesn't come at the expense of having to tolerate bleed-through either as there is none. The paper is so wafer-thin you can practically see through it, so 'ghosting' of the reverse is visible.

Like Rhodia paper, Tomoe River doesn't 'absorb' the ink as fast as conventional writing or copier paper; this does mean that drying times are a little slower than other papers, but the feel and look of writing on Tomoe River paper more than warrants the extra patience.

These packs are hand-made in Japan and contain 100 sheets of finest quality 52gsm Tomoe River writing paper. Each pad is individually bound using a low-tack gum, so all pages are easily and cleanly removeable. The card cover is gold hot-foil embossed with the Tomoe River logo. Included with every pad is a sheet of blotting paper and a sheet of grid-rule guide paper.
