I agree with another reviewer in that this paper is very nostalgic for me. My
parents traveled an ocean to build their lives in the US, carrying with them two
suitcases and a baby. We all got so excited when the air mail envelopes would
arrive. Sometimes I wouldn't see it, but I'd hear the unique crinkle of the
paper and know it meant that there was a letter from family.
I got this pad of paper wondering if it was only great because I was a kid
remembering it one way, and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was just
what I remembered, and more! My fountain pens don't bleed through (they might a
bit if I linger too long on one spot) nor do they feather. Other pens work just
as well. I write shopping lists and "honey do" lists on it just to experience
the paper more often. I've gotten my husband hooked and am here now to buy him a
pad of paper of his own! Thank you for carrying this, JetPens! It's so difficult
to find unless you come across a rare Japanese book and stationery store and I
am so happy I can easily get it now.
Side note: some have noted that this is like your run-of-the-mill tracing paper.
I don't disagree, but it is not of the same quality (and my tracing paper
doesn't make that signature sound when I unfold it).
