I am looking for calligraphy books or a refill for my fountain pen.

In the beginning, Pentalic focused on calligraphy, publishing instructional books and introducing writing instruments and calligraphy paper. Our focus has since transitioned to more universal paper products that anyone can appreciate: business professionals, hobbyists, students, artists, designers, writers and note-takers. Our Paper for Pens is a 110 lb smooth paper that accepts many types of ink. The 74 lb recycled smooth paper in our Traveler Pocket Journal Sketch, Ruled, Dot Grid and Grid versions (not the Draw version) all accept dip pen ink, ballpoint pen and calligraphy ink without bleeding through the page. The 60 lb smooth paper of the Illustrator shares similar properties to the Traveler.
