Review: Sennelier Art Notes : The smoothest FP friendly paper I have ever written on. Seriously!

Sennelier Artnotes

I'm going to make this one quick & dirty.

From the Savoir Faire catalog: "...unique little note pads that come in three different colors and four unusual sizes. Perfect for a purse or a desktop. The Ivory color has 128 unlined pages and the other two colors have 128 lined pages...Weight: Varied"

It's French. The flexible cover (front & back) feels like leather.

This is a 6x6 spiral notepad that HANDS DOWN is the smoothest paper I have ever written on with a fountain pen. Smoother than Rhodia or Clairefontaine, which tends to have a bit of "grab" to the paper that I can't really describe, and don't really like. It's very similar to Apica, but Apica will occasionally bleed.

This paper DID NOT feather, bleed, spread, or have any show through whatsoever. It is a shiny surface like Rhodia, and ink does take a few moments to dry. The ruling is 6mm.

Buy them here at Wet Paint Art the 6x6" pad is $9 and they are currently on sale.

From the Wet Paint Art Website: "An exciting collection of little Sennelier pads that come in three different colors & four unusual sizes. Green & brown covered pads are lined, ivory are blank."

Thank you! I'm still pretty backed up, but doing my best. Thanks for linking to my Ciak review. :o)

Thanks for the great review! I'm always looking for super-smooth paper. I currently use Clairefontaine, but I'll have to check this stuff out! :-)

Do you happen to know what the line spacing is on these notebooks? I like lined paper, but I don't like wide-ruled line spacing! Thanks!

Hey Kooky Chick! Thanks for the comments. The ruling on this pad is 6mm, and I have added that to the review. Thanks for reminding me!
