This paper is especially designed for all types of intaglio printing and embossing: the presence of linen adds a vibrancy of colours and makes them "shining". The paper has a "cloudy" "open" "transparent" character. Excellent for intaglio, from the finest to the heaviest lines. The structure of the surface is even, but compared to other Arches paper a bit "rough".
