- 'sexy' stationery Review by Norman
- The rather simplistic assembly style and application of binding tape on the spine may look 'amateurish' but really it's more a figment of the handmaking process. That the only specialised machines used to assemble this was a stapler should indicate the level of hand craftsmanship involved. The paper itself is a rich aged-ivory, almost fawn coloured paper that has been polished to produce a writing surface so smooth you can't help touching it with your hand to feel it. The paper takes wet inks better than any other form - I'd suppose that ballpoint or pencil may not work well on paper that smooth, but I haven't tried them. This is about the best fountain-pen writing paper you can find, especially with 'wetter' inks such as Japanese ones. (Posted on 2/06/2017)
