Highly appreciated by art publishers for its opacity, bulk, softness and natural whiteness, Arches Velin Johannot is lightly sized, making it ideal for the gravure process. It is also excelling for intaglio engraving, relief printing, linocut, lithography, screen-printing, typography, heat embossing, blind embossing and hot-foil stamping. Made with a traditional process on a cylinder mould, its quality is close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is therefore more homogeneous and has good dimensional stability. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges. It is made with cotton and Esparto. Esparto is an perennial grass that became very popular at the beginning of the 20th century. Its short fibres produce high quality paper: closed formation, good opacity and bulk make it perfect for art books and prints. It is acid-free with an alkaline reserve and no optical brightening agents (permanent in accordance with ISO 9706).
