From the album: Sandy1This is main image no. 2 of 3 in Sandy1’s review of Parker Penman Sapphire. It shows her writing with PPS on G. Lalo Verge de France paper. It should be the third linked image on the review - the first one of course being the greyscale calibration target.

So I was looking through my old stacks of papers/ journals and found some suitable paper for personal correspondence, in the form of G Lalo paper. Try as I might, I've never found anyone making journals out of G Lalo paper, or anything with the verguere pattern on their paper It's embossed lines onto the paper, so it helps guide you in writing in straight lines, and provides a rougher texture to the paper vs baby seal smooth Clairfontaine like paper. I've been using journals with dots, because I'm hopeless with blank papers and writing in a straight line. Anyone seen journals/diaries/notebooks with such paper ?
Hello friends. I saw this paper at a local store this week when I went to buy Vergé de France. I chose the Vergé since I had been attached to the prospect of getting it for some time now, but it was interesting to see an alternative. For many people, the appeal of getting the Vergé in champagne or ivory is to reproduce a vintage look, but I suppose the parchment-style paper takes that a step further. It's extremely pricey at $15 for 20 sheets, but the number of sheets may not be an obstacle depending on the scope of one's project(s). Since I haven't opened the Vergé yet, I could exchange it next week if needed. I'd just like to know if anyone has used it and has any opinions on quality, FP-friendliness (though I don't imagine this would be an issue), watermarking, the feel of the paper, etc. The latter is one of the reasons that I opted to stick with the Vergé, since I thought the extra 20 gsm of the Parchemin or some part of the manufacturing process could make it feel card stock-ish or more suitable for business or institutional use somehow. I wouldn't want to write a personal letter that looks and feels like a diploma or a fancy dinner menu. Thanks. http://www.g-lalo.fr/20-feuilles-A4-parchemin-120g--Ref-42816L.html
