Legion Art Cover
This is one of the first fine art papers that Legion introduced back in the early ‘70s for the purpose of fine art offset printing.
Legion Art was created as a quality heavyweight paper with a sized smooth surface that allows the printer to lay down multiple colors without having to worry about the paper picking or linting onto the offset blanket.
Made in both a coated and uncoated version, these papers made their mark in the offset reproduction market, which has been almost entirely replaced by digital printing. So let’s fast forward, we now have two great sheets of paper still available that have found their way into other fine art mediums.
Legion Art Cover has an ideal surface for pen & ink (without feathering as a result of the addition of surface sizing), pencil, silkscreen and surprisingly will take light wet media (also as result of the added surface sizing).
For fine art offset printing, Legion Art Cover is more suitable (vs the coated version) for the reproduction of artwork that need to be closer to the original look of, say, a watercolor or a pencil drawing.
