Fine Art Guide

Our initial range included the now familiar mill names such as Arches, Fabriano, Hahnemühle, Lana and Rives.

The brands of the well known European mills mentioned above are complemented by others such as Canson with their Heritage Aquarelle, Montval, Mi Teintes and Ingres, St. Cuthberts, with their Bockingford, Saunders Waterford and Somerset ranges, the Canaletto range from Cordenons, Clairefontaine, Schoellershammer, Zerkall, and products from Nepal and Egypt.

It is our belief that the customer, particularly in the field of fine art, demands, and should have available, the widest possible choice of fine art papers to suit his or her particular needs. This has led the extremes of our range to include inexpensive sketch pads, sheets of hand-made Egyptian Papyrus, as well as rolls of 100% cotton paper 100 yards long and weighing nearly 55kgs.

In 1999 the RKB Fat Pad range, spiral bound pads containing papers including drawing cartridge, Bockingford Watercolour, Fabriano 5, and Saunders Waterford. These economical pads provide a means for the discerning artist to work with some of these outstanding fine art papers on the move.

More recently we have introduced the Bespoke Glued Pad service allowing resellers to offer a wide range of papers with their custom cover design.
