Junpakushi paper has traditionally been used in Japanese calendars. Each page is semi transparent, with a whisper thin strength. It's thicker than tracing paper and thinner than almost any relative notepaper. One side has a satin finish while the other side has more tooth, more texture. This paper is beautiful for writing or sketching. It takes both graphite and ink well.
The 365notebook comes with a thick removable grid that you can use underneath your sheets of paper for trace and guide.
365 Notebooks are made by Shinnippon Calander Co. a company founded in Osaka in 1922 as a fan and calendar maker. After almost a century of experience making calendars their products have a sensitivity to the passing days and seasons. At Martha Mae, we appreciate that some ideas and moods are best broken up by season and other practices need a steady home, a new page, every day of the year. Shinnippon forseas all these needs with a subtle and comprehensive knowledge of paper.
