I looked at the link. It says it's made with watercolor paper for the pages, but does not say whether it is hot press or cold press paper (that will make a difference with how smooth or textured the paper is. And I'd have to see whether watercolor paper would be good for FPs -- I wonder if it would be smooth enough (and after all, WC paper is designed to be somewhat absorbent).

It would interesting to see what they are actually like, but I'm going to reserve judgment for the time being.

Hi Ruth, further down on the page, the paper is stated to be cold pressed. I wonder if it will work well with fountain pens, but I've backed the project any way. Perhaps the artists on this forum can chime in. Oh and should this thread be moved to the paraphernalia section?

Sigh. I wish he had gone with a portrait-oriented notebook. The landscape pocket watercolor notebook already exists in the Moleskine (even if it is inferior in quality). As far as I know, there is no equivalent portrait book.

Hmm. That's what I was afraid of. I'd think that there'd be too much tooth/texture for pens to work well (but it would be good for watercolors or other media). Not even sure that hot-press paper would be ideal.

This is my perfect sketchbook paper for combined sketching and fountain pen writing. It's lovely smooth paper, specifically for pen and ink. It's not pocket size though.

Bod snap, as I used to (and still do actually) say.

Stillman & Birn Epsilon, easily my favourite sketchbook too but am tempted to try the Beta & Delta range soon . . .

hot press watercolor paper and bristol both do an amazing job taking fountain pens.

8 more days to go for this Kickstarter project! :D

 

I'm not related to the Erwin, but would like to see a good project that has been carefully created and prototyped come to fruition.

 

So if there are any of you who are artists and like the idea of the sketchbook, you may want to back this project and spread the word.

Hmm...come to think of it, I'm not sure how this thread is in Pen History. I thought I started it under the chatter subforum! :P

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
