I was told that this brand of paper is fountain-pen friendly, and it is. The surface is the smoothest I've ever felt, making the pen nib glide over the paper. I've been searching for stationery but cannot find it anywhere, including the Clariefontaine web site. (It's been two years since they've been "out of stock.") I also have two of the larger wire bound books w/perforated pages that I use for letter writing-expensive but worth the cost.
P.S. Forgot to share how wonderfully helpful and pleasant Amazon's Customer Rep was when I called to report some damage to the original shipment. The charge was removed from credit card, including shipping, and they allowed me to keep the notebook at no charge. Amazon has always been the best in customer service!

Great French notebooks! Sturdy, beautiful smooth paper, the Clairefontaine quality = the best.

The quality of these notebooks is the best that I've found. The size is perfect for daily note taking when I don't need a full-size book. The paper itself is very high-quality and is heavy and sturdy without feeling too thick. Finally, the wire binding is very sturdy, doesn't easily bend, and won't catch on your clothing or other items. It allows the notebook to sit nicely either opened like a book or with the front folded around to the back.
