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

"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

Great for practice!

Allows for fine lines and crisp edges with a broad nib, which makes this paper "worth it!" Even though there's some minor bleed through, it doesn't stop me from using the back side.
