Made for writers
The Yuga letter pad has soft grey horizontal lines with 12mm spacing. The cover is a heavyweight card with an elegant design. Each pad contains 50 sheets in B5 size and includes a sheet of blotting paper for those writing on the go.
The pad contains Masuya Manuscript paper for fountain pens. It is lightweight and can handle inks without feathering or bleeding through the sheet.
Masuya paper was born out of a chance meeting with famous Japanese author Fumio Niwa in a cafe. It was approaching the second world war and many writers were worried about an impending paper shortage. It was Fumio Niwa's words that inspired them to set about creating the perfect paper for use with fountain pens, the writing instrument of choice at the time.
The paper quickly gained a cult status and was even referred to as “literary award guaranteed paper”. Many famous Japanese writers such as Yasunari Kawabata, Yasushi Inoue, Eiji Yoshikawa, Ryotaro Shiba and Junnosuke Yoshiyuki were known to have used this paper.
It was developed in a cream colour to reduce eye strain when writing at night as the light does not reflect as brightly.
