Vintage Paper of Orkney sent me two sample sheets of Whatman handmade rag paper. They must be 50 or 60 years old: details are 150gsm white (or 72lb in its day) looks almost new. What to do with them? I used one of the A5 sheets (210x148mm) for a watercolour drawing and the other for a chalk and charcoal impression. My printmaking is rusty, but I'd like to try a few wood and linocuts. That's in the pipeline.
