Second to the Hosho group of papers is one paper which stands out in sales from all the rest. It has a unique combination of price and quality, being a relatively heavy paper in a medium size, incredibly low priced, since it is a basic bulk seller in Japan, particularly in schools. It is pure white and has a light laid surface, sold in affordable packs of 50 sheets.
This wood-free and acid-free paper is used by the British Museum and the Smithsonian Institute. Its strong long fibres have the effect of disappearing when glued down to a substrate paper. In recent years, this quality has been used to advantage by printmakers and painters for works on paper. 10gsm. 50x56cm Sold per pack of 50.
