Revere Paper from Magnani

090722AGertNewPaper Left: Gert as a test subject on the new Revere paper from Magnani. (This is Revere Suede.) Click on the image to view an enlargement. Read on for more details about the paper.

Since 1404 the Magnani paper mill has been making papers on the banks of the Pescia River. Really delicious papers! Now they have added another paper: Revere. This is a 100% cotton paper suitable for drawing and printing techniques. It comes in 22 x 30 inch sheets and 30 x 40 inch sheets. The white also comes in rolls. There are six colors (not available in all sizes or finishes)—Polar White, Standard White, Warm White, Ivory, Bisque, and Black. The white range is wonderful, but I have to put a bit of a plug in for the Bisque which is a lovely sort of pinkish tinged white. It reminded me a bit of Rosapina, but not as beige. Indeed it is a lovely and delicate color that could find many happy uses for drawings and prints.

(A Revere Book with suede finish will be available in Standard White and Ivory, but was not available for me to test.)

The paper's three finishes are even more interesting: Felt, Suede, and Silk. There's pretty much something for everyone.
