Made with esparto grass and cotton, 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. Velin Johannot's paper qualities (opacity, bulk, softness, natural whiteness) are highly appreciated by artists and art publishers! The light fine grain and smoothness allows the printing of sharp, detailed images, and the very high bulk makes it an excellent choice for intaglio engraving, blind embossing and hot-foil stamping. Lightly sized, this paper is ideal for the gravure process.
Made on a cylinder mould, a traditional process, keeps the quality 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.
