Shortly later another art manufacture, US Art Supply, asked me to review their Black Paper Pad ASIN B01BLRZZLO. (Costs $7.96) Their pad is 140 gsm and 30 sheets for significantly less money than the Derwent. US Art Supply's cover and backing lay flat and this prevents the pages from curling. The Derwent is large square sheets and neither brands have perforated pages. The differences in the paper's weight are negligible with no significant advantage to Derwent's heavier paper. Both have sturdy, strong, thick paper. Both are perfect for mixed mediums and great for heavy handed people like me.
I honestly wish I'd known about US Art Supply's Black Paper Pad before I bought myself the Derwent. I definitely prefer US Art Supply's price point but the cover and backing on the Derwent are inferior to US Art Supply's. While the Derwent is a hardcover and the US Art supply has a soft cover, the US Art Supply doesn't curl my pages and that means more to me than the higher quality of the Derwent cover. Moving forward I will use US Art Supply's Black Paper Pad from my Black Paper needs.
Paper quality is great however.
