Moab ( announced their 100 percent cotton Somerset Museum Rag, an addition to their Somerset Museum Rag family of papers coated for inkjet printers. The new paper produces deep, rich blacks with a wide color gamut to make a vibrant image pop into life. Somerset is manufactured by England’s St Cuthberts Mill, producers of the legendary Somerset Enhanced Velvet paper that was one of the first durable cotton papers coated to be able to handle the broad range of colors necessary for fine art reproduction. The smooth surface, 100 percent cotton Somerset Museum Rag is a 300gsm (grams per square meter) paper made from archival, acid-free ingredients. Somerset is made using a traditional cylinder mould machine to produce a more durable and consistent surface than most machine-made papers. Somerset Museum Rag is available in 20-sheet boxes, including 8.5x11, 11x17, 13x19, and 17x22” as well as 50-feet rolls in widths of 17, 24, 44, and 60”.
