Tomoe River Paper

The 52gsm paper is incredibly thin, and very fountain pen friendly. This paper shows off the sheen and shimmer in inks unlike any other paper can do. 

Our Tomoe River paper is the same Tomoe River paper that's used in the Hobonichi Techo.  We use the same 52 gsm paper as the Hobonichi.

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

this is the jotter I was looking for

I was searching for large jotters made of Tomoe River paper for a very long time, but couldn't find any in A4. These are the largest available, B5 is a good compromise.

They are well made. The cover is sturdy enough, the pages are thoroughly sewn together. The only thing I don't like is the very large and golden advertising on the cover, i.e., the company name and so forth. This can be forgiven easily, though, since Galen is a leather company and you're supposed to put the jotter in one of their covers. I don't, but since I individually bind my books anyway, this is not a problem at all.

The blotting paper they send along actually isn't paper, but a sheet of soft leather. That makes these books even better! It's a gorgeous tool, since it does not only serve as a blotter, but also as a pad when writing. Very handy for that very thin paper!

I'm overly satisfied and re-ordered two packs of three, in order to always have them at hand.

My new favorite notebook!!

I ordered these B5 Everyday TRP notebooks a few months ago and just filled up one of them! Not only was this my first exposure to Tomoe River paper (now I cannot bring myself to use any other paper for fountain pens...!!), but I have absolutely fallen in love with these notebooks from Galen. The B5 size is perfect to contain my thoughts and personal notes - larger than A5, which seem a bit too narrow sometimes, and not as huge as A4, which are more suited for school notes. Nowhere else can you find a B5 size notebook filled with this precious treasure of a paper!! The leather blotting pad is perfect for covering the left page when I move over to writing on the right side and prevents my arm from smearing the ink. The guide sheets are cut perfectly to fit under each page and keep my writing straight without needing a dot grid or graph ruling printed on the paper (I didn't know how nice a blank sheet filled with fountain pen ink looks without the distraction of other rulings!). This really is my new favorite, go-to notebook and I am definitely coming back for more! Thank you so much for making these!!

Amazing

Absolutely love these books! Love the paper and the color. I was happily surprised by the bags the books came from as well as the other goodies! I am already trying to decide what size to get next!

Using it Everyday!

I really appreciated this notebook right out of the box--literally! The ruled wide, college and graph inserts coupled by the leather sheet, that alleviates pressure marks on the other pages while writing, really make the possibilities endless when I journal. I also recently have extended my fountain pen and inks collection so this notebook is not only exceptional quality to use them on but it makes every ink that I use to look so much more wonderful dimensional. The combination is exhilarating. I will purchase from Galen Leather Co. again, thanks!

Luscious and practical!

I have been using the Every Day books since they first came out and these new sizes are a wonderful addition to the line up. They have beautiful cover illustrations, the dreamiest Tomoe River paper and a slim profile, perfect for tucking into a bag or one of Galen’s beautiful covers. I use different sizes for different projects and I love them all. I’m sure I will run through them as quickly as I did my last batch. I use them to the very last page. Thank you Galen for making the perfect notebook! ❤️
