Moab have added a brief blog post to their website on my upcoming exhibition – printed entirely on my favourite new paper – Somerset Museum Rag paper.
Somerset Museum Rag is the newest paper by the acclaimed St Cuthberts Mill in England, who over a decade ago helped create an entire industry when it launched Somerset Enhanced Velvet – one of the first papers used for fine art digital imaging.
Somerset Museum Rag is a pioneer in its own right while remaining true to its history. It combines an archival 100% cotton heavyweight paper with a smooth surface, sensuous to the touch while durable to everyday handling, with the latest in coating technologies to produce deep, rich blacks with an unparalleled color gamut to make a vibrant image pop to life.
In addition to the inkjet-coated version, the original, uncoated Somerset papers continue to be one of the top papers used by artists worldwide for nearly every form of printmaking.
