Week #17 included three different sheets of 90g blank white paper:
- GraFit Sketch Pads (the smallest)
- Trophee Sketch Pads (the middle size)
- Crok' Book (the largest size)
Week #18 samples included four sheets of ivory, lined paper:
- Rhodia Webnotebook 90g (small)
- Quo Vadis Habana 85 g (small)
- Rhodia Webnotebook 90g (large)
- Quo Vadis Habana 85g (large)
Of course all the samples are smooth, high quality, and accommodated the wet, heavy inks I prefer -- with no bleed through, no feathering, and no smudging. The Week #17 samples are best suited for sketching or doodling, and I certainly will use them for that purpose.
By contrast, the lines on the Webbie and Quo Vadis samples make them best for writing. Although I like the size of the large Quo Vadis Habana sheet, the line spacing on the page is too tight -- and not nearly wide enough to accommodate my large writing. The same is true for the small Quo Vadis and Webbie samples. Only the large Webnotebook sample has a line width that will accommodate my penmanship adequately, although I could adjust my writing to be able to use the narrower ruled sheets.
Looking forward to Week #19 paper samples and to more experimentation with paper and pens!
