P36. Clairefontaine BLANK Pad. Triomphe.
Paper is bright white, extra smooth, pH neutral paper, 24lb/90gsm (sheets 26lb/100gsm), 8.25"x11.75". Blank. Pad of 50 sheets. From France. Recommended by Michael Sull for Spencerian and Off-Hand Flourishing.
This is some of my favorite paper to practice on. The surface is an absolute dream for pointed pen, and ink does not wick nor readily bleed through.
I was gifted one of these by a friend and its incredibly smooth. I like it a lot for drawing geometric pattern drafting with ruler and compass because it doesn't eat up the lead in my compass due to the lack of tooth. This means my drawings come out cleaner. Also, its not as thin as tracing paper so ink and pencil show up on it well but its also thin enough to use with the not so bright mini light table I have. Paper also breaks free of the pad without ripping which is a bonus.
