Simply put one of the loveliest papers in the world. Made on slow rotating mould machines out of 100% cotton. All sheets are acid-free and chlorine-free. The cold pressed surface is a joy to work on in virtually any media. For artists seeking a lightly sized paper for watercolors this is the paper! If you work in pastels this sheet is one of the best to work on. It is also a fantastic sheet for pen and ink pencil charcoal and of course for printing on. The 140lb weight is a classic favorite and it is available in sheets in five shades.
