Tomoe River Paper

This high quality 52gsm paper is incredibly thin, and very fountain pen friendly. Tomoe River Paper shows off the sheen and shimmer in fountain pen inks unlike any other paper.

Our Tomoe River paper is the same Tomoe River paper that's used in the Hobonichi Techo.

Fountain pen enthusiasts who favor shading ink (those that create subtle color gradations as ink is laid on the paper), will appreciate how the paper shows off subtle color variations. Sheening inks also perform well as pools of color will sit on the surface of the paper and when dry, will create the reflective look so many fountain pen users love. It’s important to be patient and let the paper fully dry to prevent smudging, especially when using sheening or metallic inks. Click here to read our blog post about Tomoe River Paper.

love my notebooks

I ordered one in each size and I absolutely love them. The quality is great and my fountain pens write beautifully in them. I ordered 3 more in the other color. It shipped out quickly at I got them in record time! I can't wait until they start to patina and show the everyday use wear and tear. If you can't decide if you want to get one, just do yourself a favor and buy it. You will not be disappointed.

Great notebook!

Galen Leather's new leather-bound blank notebook is fantastic! Beautiful packaging to start - the magnetic closure is a nice touch. As a fan of Tomoe River paper, this book has plenty to offer, 200 sheets/400 pages! While blank pages are not my first choice, the included line and grid guides are useful and I've been using them to keep everything straight. The leather cover, in a perfect dark green, is just right, not too stiff and not too flexible. The cover will fold all the way back, still allowing you to write. Show through on the white, 52gsm paper can be an issue, but I have not found it distracting when using both sides of the page. This is my first leather-bound notebook from Galen and will not be my last.

Belki de şanssızlıktan...

Önceki siparişim 400 sayfalık every day notebook'umun cildinden daha sağlam olacağını düşündüğüm için yeşil deri olan bu defteri sipariş ettim. Genel olarak dokusunu sevdim ve sağlamlık konusunda da sorun yok simdilik ama dikişleri nizami değil bazı sayfaların dikişleri sağdaki sayfaya kaymış, o sayfalar defteri kapatirken disari tasma yapiyor biraz. Bir de kapağının ortasinda hafif doku kaybı(belki deri olduğundandır, üstten bakınca dikkat çekmiyor), sağ üstündeki bir bölgede de mum katmanı gibi bir katman vardı. sag üstteki katmanı hafif nemli bezle sildim ancak bu katman ile birlikte rengi ve dokusunda da biraz bozulma oldu. Benim buradan ikinci siparişim olduğu için ve deri ürünler hakkinda pek bilgim olmadığı için bu tür şeyler normal mi bilmiyorum, belki bana şans eseri böylesi denk geldi ama benim için bu fiyata biraz hayal kırıklığı oldu. Yanındaki hediyeler, klavuz ve kurutma kağıtlari, extra hızlı kargolama ve mail ile bilgilendirmeler için teşekkür ederim.

Another Fine Example of Galen Craftsmanship and Quality

I love the flexibility, feel and quality of the paper. Went a little crazy on my recent order and bought Three. The lie-flat feature is what has been missing from others that I have used over the years. So glad to have found Galen. Highly recommended!

A beautiful notebook!

This notebook is the same as Everyday Notebook. The best part is the leather cover which makes it special. It feels so good to hold it. B6 size is perfect for me. Not too big..not too small. Loving it!

An endearing gift

This is an exercise book sized notebook that has at least a couple of hundred pages of thin but high quality paper that absorbs fountain pen ink and does not feather or bleed through. The soft leather cover makes this an elegant, and a bit rustic feel about it. The notebook comes with two sheets, double sided each. The first has two sizes of squares, and the second has one narrow line spacing, and one with a broader line spacing. They help the writer to write or draw straight on the blank pages. The temptation to build a collection of journals and notes with a shelf-full of this notebook may be irresistible.
