The traditional beige paper developed and perfected by Maestro Pietro Annigoni with the Magnani 1404 master papermakers is suitable for techniques like pastel and charcoal, with a natural grain that makes it both distinctive and unique.



The ‘recipe’ for perfect paper

Made on a cylinder mould machine, Annigoni paper was developed by the Magnani master papermakers in close partnership with the famous maestro by the same name, who used it for his own artworks.
Its 100% cotton composition with the addition of coloured cellulosic fibres, plus the total absence of acids and chlorine derivates, endow this paper with high resistance against yellowing from UV rays and against wear and tear.
The paper has a natural rough surface and is especially indicated for techniques with charcoal, sanguine and pastel. It is also suitable for being treated with natural mediums like rabbit glue.



Acid Free

Magnani 1404 papers are completely acid-free and produced in a neutral environment. This not only provides greater UV resistance, but also promises a long lifespan.

Long Life

Our ISO 9706 compliant papers, which are labelled “LONG LIFE” or permanent, provide a guarantee of the paper’s physical and chemical stability over time. The standard requires a minimum level of alkaline reserve, such as calcium carbonate, to neutralise any acids present. It also sets a maximum limit for easily oxidised substances and must be produced in an acid free environment.

Oba Free

The acronym “OBA” stands for “Optical Brighteners Agent”, chemical substances used during the production process to make paper look whiter and brighter. We avoid the use of these optical brighteners in Magnani 1404 papers because they can degrade over time, compromising not only their brightness, but also effectively changing the colour of the paper itself.

The Cylinder Mould Machine

Magnani 1404 papers are produced exclusively on a cylinder mould machine: this traditional production process mimics the hand-crafting techniques of the master papermakers of days gone by, coming as close as possible to the quality of handmade paper. Production is slower than on the flatbed mill, allowing the fibres to settle evenly, resulting in smooth, even paper.

The Raw Materials

We use only natural fibres from sustainable sources, such as cotton or alpha cellulose. Cotton is a key raw material in our art paper production process: its long fibres provide extraordinary flexibility, strength and absorbency, giving the paper a distinctive quality. Plus, as it is lignin free, cotton naturally makes the paper more resistant to yellowing.
