P70. Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad 11x17inch
P70.Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad. 24lb.
11"x17", 50 sheets

A great pad for broad-edged pen practice. Has a nice tooth and holds good hairlines. Acid-free. Highly recommended by Peter Thornton.

also available in 8.5"x11", see item P69

"Calligraphers in Portland [Oregon] have been using Gilbert Bond for years and years and LOVE it totally. My students and I have decided that ‘we are worth it’ and use Gilbert for practice. We think using a better paper makes our calligraphy practice seem more important (and practice is so important!). I thoroughly recommend the paper; it would be hard to recommend Gilbert Bond too highly!" - Carol DuBosch
