Best Calligraphy Papers

Even taking into account the myriad quills, pens and nibs available on the market, the sweet spot for calligraphy paper comes down to sizing and surface texture.  You'll want a paper with enough surface sizing to prevent the ink from spreading  and feathering yet has sufficient absorbency to prevent smearing when overlapping lines.  

As for surface, typically a smoother, Hot Press surface is preferred as it will allow the pen or brush to move easily and undisturbed leaving a crisp line.  A rougher paper will cause some dragging on the nib creating  a more ragged edge and broken lines.
