The large Premium R Pad by Rhodia is surely the very best writing pad in the world! It has all of the clever design of the classic Rhodia Pad but employs even higher quality materials than normal - a seriously lovely writing experience is guaranteed.
The Premium R Pad has 90gsm super-smooth plain paper, made by the famous Clairefontaine Paper Mill in France. The blank notebook is 100% fountain-pen friendly and soft to touch. Complementing this is a soft touch, almost leatherette, cover which is still scored to fold back nice and neatly.
All 70 sheets (140 pages) of this A4 writing pad are micro-perforated for easy removal and the pad has a very sturdy backing.

- Extremely smooth, high quality paper. Review by Tyson
- I bought one of these pads to do something of an 'ink journal' if you will. As something I could use to document all the inks I come across - which, I assume, will grow as time passes, considering I'm only a student. Which brings me to the main point of this review. I know ivory paper doesn't show anyone looking the true colour of the ink, but this paper is so smooth and high quality, it doesn't really matter. The ivory hue isn't super yellow, it's present, but not overpowering, and the ink looks more or less the same as it does on white paper. The writing experience is quite enjoyable, and I really do love this pad. Downside is the price, but again, I'm a student, it probably won't bother me much in a few years time, but $17 does seem a hefty price for a notepad, and it's completely worth every cent. I only wish I could buy one with a dot-grid. The only thing you'll regret about these notepads is not buying another one. (Posted on 21/09/2017)
