A Legendary paper that is no longer made!

 This Crisbrook Hand Made Paper was hand made in 1986 by J. Green & Sons -Hayle Mill, England.
   This fine paper was made of 100%cotton with a beautiful near white color. It is a hefty 140lb weight and Imperial size which is approximately 22 1/2 x 31
The Cold pressed surface is wonderfully semi smooth- Just the surface made with pressing with well made woolen felts.
    This legendary paper is considered one of the finest made for printmaking.
This paper is a waterleaf -un sized absorbent paper made for printmaking. It is great with engravings.
It can be used for some types of drawing. Some artists have used this wonderful paper for painting to achieve very soft edges- as with blotting paper. Other artists have sized this paper to suit their work with gelatin or other sizing. Few modern papers have the preferred gelatin sizing.
   The Mill closed in 1987 and remaining unused papers like this are highly sought after throughout the world. This paper is also used for restoration of works on this paper.
   Watermarks are distinctive.The photos shown were taken with light coming through back of paper makes paper look darker than the beautiful near white color.
   Watermarks :"J B G 1986" lower right side of sheets
