OTM 1960s 70gsm Letterweight - 10 large sheets
OTM - Original Turkey Mill
A vintage machine-made paper dating from the 1960s made at the most important papermill in western papermaking history.
Turkey Mill, the home of James Whatman, was an early adopter of machine made papers, their first machine up and running in 1857.
Well known in their time throughout the world for their writing, ledger and drawing (inc printmaking papers) these are the very finest machine made papers we have ever had the pleasure of handling.
OTM papers were made using cotton, sized with gelatine and either loft sized or force dried depending on the requirements.
