Additional Info

Once upon a time, the paper Verge was made by hand in huge vats. Today, G. Lalo makes the same paper according to traditional methods but with modern techniques. Verge refers to the grid of parallel translucent lines (vergeures) that was formed in handmade paper as the sheets were laid to dry (the origin of the term laid finish). These grids are very helpful as guides for handwriting. In addition, they add a distinctive look and feel - the mark of an elite letter writing paper.
