A lot of fountain pen enthusiasts are interested in Rhodia and Clairfontaine notebooks. With their glossy 80-90 gr paper quality, they have been preferred by penthusiasts. However, in Turkey it was not possible to find any Rhodia or Clairefontaine other than graph papers. Therefore I was quite shocked when I see those huge Rhodia and Clairefontaine stands in D&R (a local bookstore chain)
I got a black A5 Rhodia line notebook with 90 gr paper (7 USD), an orange lined notepad 80 gr paper, (7 USD), a red A4 lined Clairefontaine with 90 gr paper (4 USD) and a black A5 dotpad from Rhodia with 80 gr paper (should be about 9-10 USD).
By the way, I will be in Ankara for the next weekend, to be more specific on September 14, Saturday. I have some fountain pen enthusiasts in touch and we are planning a small meeting with them. You are more than welcome if you are available in Ankara for next Saturday 🙂
