Review: New Rhodia LeCarre Pads

Rhodia LeCarre

The new Rhodia Le Carre pads are available in 5 ¾ x 5 ¾" and 8 ¼ x 8 ¼" with orange or black covers, and contain Rhodia's 80g fountain pen friendly paper. 5x5 graph is the current option. As in all of the Bloc Rhodia pads, the pages are micro-perforated and are easy to remove.

I personally love the square format of the pad, as it is very easy for me to make a circular mandala on square paper, but the writing surface itself isn't square once you flip the cover back. I'm guessing that the overall aesthetics of the square pad are what makes this product appealing, rather than having a perfectly square writing surface.

The LeCarre pads sell for approximately $5 and $8.

Those look nice! I think that I'll stick with the reverse book, though. I like having the spiral binding so that I can keep the pages in and still fold the cover over completely.

Hi Steph-

I also get just a bit nuts with the SQ pads not having a resulting sq drawing page. I like the spiral bound ones, so I have solved the problem by taking a 6 x 9 pad, marking a true 6 x 6 drawing square on the cover, clamping each side to hold the paper in place, then using an exacto-knife and straight edge to cut thru all the pages and covers. Don't forget to clip the binding and then I have a square pad and a neat, skinny doodle pad.

thanks for thrying out all these great papers and pens and inks. Such fun! molly z
