STONEHENGE

Originally created in 1972 by Michael Ginsburg (President of Legion Paper) with the Rising Paper Mill in Housatonic Massachusetts, where it was produced until early 2007, production is now organised in the USA by Legion Papers.

Stonehenge was developed specifically as a 100% cotton deckled paper for the printmaking community, made to rival the more expensive European mouldmade papers. It was quickly adopted not just by printmakers, but by artists working in a broad spectrum of media.

Over the years it has gained worldwide recognition as a paper that works wonderfully across as a range of other fine art applications. This versatility, combined with its affordability, has helped Stonehenge become one of the most popular artist paper for students and professionals alike.

The paper of choice of many members of the Colored Pencil Society of America, Stonehenge has the ability to take multiple layers of wax-based and oil-based colored pencil without any buildup, allowing colors to penetrate and absorb into the surface of the sheet.

Stonehenge is also an excellent silkscreen paper with its ability to take as many as 50-75 colors, printed one color at a time, and maintain perfect color registration as a result of its incredible dimensional stability.
