The mysterious appeal of good paper

Post Comment


Jeff Abbott, bestselling author of suspense titles Panic and Fear, drew our attention to one of his recent blog posts. Turns out he uses Clairefontaine notebooks to sketch out his works in progress!

“My assistant orders them for me in stacks of five so I never have to worry about running out,” he explained.

What does he like about them?

The difference is the paper. If I am spending literally hours with a notebook, I want the paper to be strong and also to hold the ink well, whether I’m using a gel pen or a fountain pen. I want the notebook to be tough and handle weeks of abuse as it gets carted around from my studio to my bedside to my briefcase.
