The "marketing geniuses" have found the watercolor paper, apparently. That might explain why I've been buying paper with the same name as types that are reported to work well, but what I get at Hobby Lobby doesn't (Canson Montval being a prime example). The stuff in pads is *not the same* as the loose sheet paper of the same name. Blocks, maybe, but not the comb- or spiral-bound pads...
