On all papers there is an A and B side...............on typewriter papers there is a A and a F side..........they only coated one side of typewriter papers. Only typed on one side.
As far as I can tell, both sides do a good enough job....one can write on the back if the bleed through is not too bad.
- Black n Red, or any Oxford/(Campus?)/Optik paper.
Clairefontaine 90g Velout` is one of some 30 or so inks better than the Oxford Optic 90g.
I have both in a spiral notebook and am happy with them.
Oxford Optic is also available in Spain.
I do strive to get some good to better paper with every three inks................somehow I've managed to avoid Rhoda and Clairefontaine Triumph...... ....Stupid thinks like pens show up.
As often as not I end up chasing some heavy paper....Don't have Verge` de France in 90g....have it in 160.
Gmund Beige Blanc, 170g is almost perfect....cost me quite a bit....yacht paper....if you got to ask, you can't afford it. The 120G of the same is perfect. I liked the feeling of the heavy paper more.....next time...well at E40 not counting postage....I'll have to buy a smaller yacht.
Well all 100-50% cotton will not shade well........not even the 125 g Velin pur Coton.....and "knowing better" don't know why I ended up with three packages of it. And none of 90g.
The M&K papers...three of them are good. (typewriter paper is 95G).......and mailing from Germany is not expensive to England right now..................Do Not Buy any other Brunner papers.....had my printer not been old and on it's last legs....I'd shoved the 120g Buetten paper with ( 'deckle-edged/patterned edge ) into the printer and I expect Butten paper to be good..... ....
Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
Pens/inks/paper on hold for a year....new addiction pocket watch chains.
