Tuesday Talk Back: No. 38 Do you like working big?



What do you think about the Rhodia 16 1⁄2 x 12 1⁄2″ Rhodia No. 38 tablet? How would you use a tablet this large? In the image above, I was using it to create a mind map for a project idea. (Mind-maps are diagrams used to visually organize information) 

The No. 38 is available in graph ruling with an orange cover, and dot ruling with a black cover. They each contain 80 sheets of 80g fountain pen friendly paper.

From Kim King of the blog Consider the Lilies: My arm is on the 38 as I lay down lines, I lean on it as I write…I am so, well, intimate, with the same space where something is being created…and the canvas is just waiting for me… I love that feeling…ink in pen, pen in hand, paper waiting…anything is possible.

  1. I rarely work with paper so large. When I had to give presentations before missions, long ago in the dark days before fancy projectors, such a pad would have come in handy.

  2. This is my favorite! I use it for plotting manuscripts. I can write in all directions, move things around, draw lines and arrows and think on the page and it erases beautifully with the 6B pencils I favor for the first drafts. Then, when I have everything sorted, I can do the W plot curve in fountain pen ink on another sheet and fill in the protagonists and antagonists in different colored ink. Big enough to see what I’m doing, yet still portable.

    Love, love, LOVE these!

  3. I like the idea of using this as a giant mouse mat. I have been put off trying the clic bloc pad because although I love the idea of mouse mat notepads they never seem big enough for me; I get annoyed when my mouse gets caught on the edges so they don’t get used for long. I’m pretty sure this would be big enough even for me (and in fact I might need a bigger desk to accommodate it!).
