Paper

I'm searching for a paper. A paper thats good for light watercolor washes, collage and smooth for writing, it's foldable for binding and isn't too expensive. I'm making a book for someone and they need paper that can handle all those types of work. It also needs to be oatmeal colored. I'm thinking a trip to boston may be in order for this one.

I'm thinking Stonehenge or somerset paper may be the way to go. Both are good printmaking papers that can withstand intalio as well as block printing. Meaning they are tough and stand up to abuse.

If anyone else has any ideas eitehr email me or leave a note on here.

Hi!
I like Zerkall Smooth - it's also a printmaking paper, and oatmeal in colour. I'm just making a book with it at the moment, and have come to your blog for inspiration :)
Thanks,
