Hi Arthur, Try finding a roll of "sketch paper" in an art store. Should be dirt cheap. Usually comes in 50 yd. rolls. That is if you have no luck obtaining some from a member. Paper variety is not what it used to be.
Regards, Richard

Thanks Richard.
It is very hard to find this paper or any really good sheet paper.
I have a small notebook i purchased on a recent trip to Paris and love the paper. It takes fountain pen ink very well and asking the paper store near where i live they seem to think it is Onion Skin paper. There is some on ebay but the cost is high.

I haven't bought any for years, and there seem to be no "old fashioned" stationary stores anymore. But there are two possible sources. I saw some on an on-line paper shop for about $25/ream. Also it is used by black power gun enthusiasts so checking those kinds of sites may be another option. It was great material when typing multiple carbon copies!

You probably found this already yourself, but:

Thanks. Have found those 2 examples on the web but would love to find the older stock if possible.
