Flamboyant Blocks



The unique surface of this paper is random, extra rough and open. It has a soft feel to the touch. This paper is particularly well suited to rough and abstract work as it will allow you to create effects not possible with the more traditional surfaces. Due to the open nature of the paper it is not suitable for use of masking fluid. The paper is made of 50% Cotton and 50% Cellulose. It has all of the attributes required of an artist quality paper being natural white, 300gsm, Ph neutral, acid free and free from optical brighteners.

Magnani Annigoni



Annigoni is a unique paper being specifically created by the Magnani mill in the 1950s for the Italian painter Pietro Annigoni who is best known for his painting of Queen Elizabeth II in 1956. Pietro Annigoni particularly used the paper for his portrait work. The paper is still made the same way today on a cylinder mould machine using the receipe perfected by the Magnani papermakers and Maestro Annigoni. The paper is 250gsm, beige in tone with a wonderful soft smooth surface. It is 100% cotton with the addition of wool fibres and colourants.
