    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.

    "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

Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

    This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
