For centuries, Fabriano has been famous the world over for its production of exceptional papers for fine arts, printmaking and stationery. As the oldest paper mill in Europe, Fabriano’s master papermakers count among their achievements the development of surface sizing to protect paper and augment its archival characteristics, and the creation of the watermark, originally used as the artisanal signature of the papermaker, now used to identify the mill and sheet. Today, Fabriano carries these traditions forward, offering papers made entirely by hand as well as fine papers for every technique and every level of achievement.
The development of Ingres paper for drawing is ascribed to the French Neoclassical artist Dominique Ingres (1780-1867), although modern ingres papers can differ from those actually used by Ingres. Important is that the pattern is a laid mesh. The laid effect creates a toothy grain of close lines on one side and a mottled surface on the reverse. The grain direction runs parallel to the 19.5" side. The toothiness allows the paper to take charcoal easily and evenly. Ingres paper is favored in book arts for its antique appearance and pH neutrality.
