Among a range of other papers, Gilbert Bond is highly recommended on page 48 of this book. Unfortunately, manufacturers change papers without notice. While this paper is still great with most all inks, it is not really suitable for the various colors of Pilot Parallel Pen cartridge ink. You should explore the other papers mentioned on that page of the book. The JNB Graph Pads (P21 & P22) also work well with Parallel Pen ink as does the JNB practice pads (P25 & P22). The bonus pack of single sheets is printed on the paper used in these pads.
