For reference I list here those old papers which are now sold out
Created by Barcham Green for the legal profession with a book and gavel watermark.
A soft pastel green/off white shade and a sensual , slightly textured hot press
finish. Nice for illustration and watercolors as well as writing.
15 1/2" x 20 1/2"
From the legendary Whatman mill which has the distinction of being the only
handmand paper to be counterfited -- watermark and all. White and glassy smooth
with a heavy tub sizing (called "English" sizing in the trade). A
work of art in itself and very rare today as the mill closed in 1961.
18" x 23 3/4"
A ninteenth century Chinese handmade paper that is folded twice like bolts
of silk. Taken from eastern China in 1949 by an antique dealer fleeing the communist
takeover. Delicate and fragile with folds that iron out, and it contains occassional
small fiber lumps. It takes a light touch of the pen with crisp strokes and
suits watercolors as well. A test of the delicacy of your hand. I usually tear
it along the folds into three tall pieces.
