These pads work best and have been tested with sumi, gouache, vermillion ink. However, due to a variety of inks out there, you may experience slight bleeding depending on the ink.

As a relative newcomer to calligraphy, I've bought several copperplate instruction books and found them to be not-quite-right in some way. Some had insufficient direction, whilst others, conversely, were so complex and technical that I felt like giving up. Whilst not the cheapest, this book is just right for me - enough help and instruction to help me get a good result without having to read through reams of information. Succinct and helpful directions are given at the top of each page, along with alternative styles for certain letters. I like how I am able to directly copy over the examples, then gradually the training wheels are taken away so that you become more independent (I have used tracing paper over the pages rather than writing directly onto the pad, so I cannot comment on the paper quality - it does feel beautifully thick and smooth however). If I could improve upon the book at all, it would be a) to have spiral binding, and b) to supply examples of frequently used connections - perhaps this could be a follow on book? Regardless, I've just bought the Uppercase book before it goes out of stock.
