French Series



The Tellière paper size, a lesser-known yet significant member of the ISO 216 series, holds its own unique place in the world of standardized paper dimensions. This format, measuring 440mm x 340mm, is part of the B series under ISO 216. The B series is designed to provide paper sizes that aren't covered by the A series but are also widely used for a variety of applications.

What sets Tellière apart from other formats is its specific use in cartography and technical drawings. Its dimensions make it an ideal choice for detailed maps or large-scale architectural plans where precision and clarity are paramount.
