Field Notes Icons: Paper & Ink

Some big news recently for all of us who are a bit fussy about our paper and ink involving the Rhodia Webnotebook. Currently available with 80g paper, this is a favourite of fountain pen users (like our friends at the Fountain Pen Network) and people who love a smooth, high-performance paper...and it's about to get even better!

News from ths US that Rhodia is soon to release a new Webnotebook with even better paper stock! The new Webnotebook (available in the US from July) will feature the legendary Clairefontaine 90g paper stock - the most bleed-proof and smooth paper we now of in a notebook.

To see just how good this paper is, check out this great review at Spiritual Evolution of the Bean or a great review at Whatever featuring the Clairefontaine Cloth Bound Cahier.

After a bit of sleuthing, we've learned that the new 90g paper version of the Webnotebook will be available in Australia towards the end of the year and we can't wait! So, for anyone as desperate as we are to try it out, you can check out this competition at Rhodia Drive (via Potentially Percipicacious)to win one of these newbies!

We'll let the US' Office Supply Geek have the last words on the performance of this notebook: "The smooth writing experience is one thing, but it is also important to note that this paper handles the ink very well, there was no feathering and certainly not enough bleedthrough to be a distraction, in fact if I had to rate the bleed through on a scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being the best, Id give it about a 1.5…so overall its just really awesome paper."
