This may be the best all around paper ever. Thin enough to see through, if you would like to trace something. Yet thick enough that it has no bleed through. I am quite sure you could force it to bleed through if you tried hard enough. But for sketching with a Tombow brush pen, this paper is perfection. Also, when using technical pencils, this paper shines yet again. Very smudge resistant. This will now be my go to pad for almost everything. I really wish there was a 3.5x5.5" size with the dot grid pattern, my life would be complete...
Maruman Co., Ltd. was founded in 1920 in Tokyo Japan to produce and sell sketch books to middle schools. The founder of Maruman went to visit Europe to purchase spiral notebook machines at that time. At the time, such machines were the first to be used in Japan. In 1967, Maruman developed a plastic binder. In 1995, Maruman created a report pad series with a simple and novel design.
Maruman's research focus is "how to practically bind paper". The company takes great care in distinguishing various usage types of paper and design paper types specific to each particular function, be it for studying, drawing, painting, journaling, etc.
Maruman's latest product line, "Mnemosyne", is a big hit in Japan. Named after the Greek goddess for memory, each Mnemosyne notebook features a sturdy cover and is firmly bound with a dual ring system.
