Penicuik Paper

Regular price £49.00

Sold either as single sheets or in five sheet bundles.

We anticipate that these will be of extreme interest to antique paper collectors - the size and completeness of the sheets making them very rare.

For art purposes these will be suitable for printmakers, calligraphers, cyanotype, light watercolour, bookbinding and conservation. 

This paper is as close as you'll get to the type of paper the old masters would have used back in the day and so, especially for those intrigued by what it's like to work on actual old paper, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Please note that these sheets have been selected as best quality based on overall cleanliness.

There will be minor creases, especially along the edge they were bound on, and all sheets have a few sets of tiny puncture marks where they were sewn into the bindings. There may be minor areas of discolouration along the edges where the paper has been exposed to the elements over the past 400 years. 

Size: 26 x 22 inches, 656 x 562 mm (approximately)

Weight: Text-weight (varies from sheet to sheet)

Surface: Laid (lines 1⅛ inch apart)

Fibre: Hemp or most likely, Linen.

Stock is VERY limited - these are the only sheets that we will ever sell in complete, unused condition.
