Just a quick warning to anyone considering Daler Rowney Calligraphy paper....don't. I haven't had wonderful experience of Daler Rowney notebooks so perhaps I should have known better, but I saw a book of sheets of calligraphy paper for sale and thought they looked like quite nice textured paper. The pad actually has three different shades of paper in it, all at 90gsm. It feathers. It's horrible and scratchy even with the smoothest of nibs. It bleeds and has show through. Horrifically bad paper at a premium price. Do not buy, it's just nasty. I find I get really irritated by poor, sub standard paper which is charged at a premium price; especially when they charge a lot of money for it. It is becoming more common these days because it's not so noticeable that it is actually junk paper if you are writing with a biro, but then I'd really appreciate it if they charged the junk price rather than rip me off and charge a premium for junk.
