Certainly one of my favourite letter writing papers is it ultra paper that is thin Life Stationery, the Life Airmail pad.

This paper is merely a delight – air mail paper that is a bit like onion skin paper, lightweight and thin, as originally designed to reduce postage costs while enabling the writer to fit more pages into an envelope. I really like the very thought of stacks of letters, tied along with string, holding the story of months or years apart between a couple. The thin, crinkly texture for this paper is a bit nostalgic, and you realize that’s the way that is secret my heart.

But what makes this paper truly excellent is that along with being very thin, it’s also extremely fountain pen friendly, even with broad and wet nibs. The paper is so thin it’s translucent, and yet i could use almost any nib and ink combination We have, with my letters and lines looking neat and crisp.

Alas, due to the fact paper is so see-through, the backside of this paper just isn’t super for writing on, until you’ve used a supplementary fine nib or maybe not a fountain pen.

This paper is not the same as Tomoe River paper – it’s definitely thinner (and it has more show through), and also has a bit more texture. It’s hard to catch a photograph of it, but it has a texture sort of like cotton paper while I would still describe this paper as generally smooth. It’s also more crinkly than Tomoe River paper, given that it’s so incredibly thin – the full life Airmail paper is similar to true onion skin paper.

The lines are the guidelines included with the pad to place underneath, and on the right is the Airmail paper on the left is the cream Tomoe River Paper.

The paper is B5 sized, that will be a size that is great letters and notebooks, one of my favourite. I use A5 for thank you notes or simply writing to say hello, and A4 when I’ve got a great deal to say, but B5 is a great size that is intermediate.
