Notes from the Past

Art Paper

A superfine 'calendered' (ironed) paper with a surface of china clay or kaolin, giving it a highly enamelled finish for the printing of fine-screen half-tone blocks.  Has occasionally been used for stamp printing.  The issues of Kishangarh are examples.  Sometimes called coated paper.
