I ordered this not knowing...

I ordered this not knowing what to expect given the lack of reviews. Based on
how great the Maruman Mnemosyne notebook paper is, I figured this would be on
the same level. The price also seemed to indicate really high quality.
When I examined the sketchbook (it's really more of a pad than a book) I noticed
that it's not much more than semi-transparent vellum paper with a very light
grey grid on it. The paper is neutral white with a slight tooth and it's very
thin. The paper is also super sensitive to heat and warps easily when you rest
your hand on it.
It's not bad paper, but the price is way off the mark of what it should be.
There are other papers out there that offer superior drawing characteristics,
durability, and resistance to heat that don't cost half as much. The pad itself
is also very fragile.
Not sure why these pads are priced so high, but I don't see anything about this
paper to warrant the cost. Not recommended.
