N30. Folded Ruling Pen
Folded Ruling Pen

Introduced at Letterforum in 1995, this innovative lettering tool has been popular ever since. Use it to produce tight "brush lettering" with a pen or for wild, fun, expressive lettering. These are the originals made by Matthew Coffin and highly praised by Carl Rohrs and Peter Thornton as superior to others that are available.

Peter Thornton has his students use our Polishing Paper (S107) to lightly abrade the outer and inner surfaces of the Folded Pen. This allows the ink to spread out on the pen instead of beading up.

19"x25". 120gsm. pH neutral. Cream.

A mixture of cotton and high alpha cellulose. Sheets have three deckle edges and one cut edge. High alpha cellulose is a very pure form of wood pulp which is considered to have the same longevity as cotton or other plant fibers.

This beautiful wavy laid paper is a favorite of Jean Formo. She uses it in her walnut ink classes. I find it easy to erase. Some inks allow correction with a white plastic eraser!
