You’re already familiar with the great value and performance of Stonehenge papers for printmaking and drawing. Now we’re excited to introduce Stonehenge Aqua - the newest member of the Stonehenge family for watercolor artists.

Stonehenge Aqua is as finely crafted as it is affordable. Performing way beyond its price point, it has been tested to its limits and as it turns out, it has no limits. Wet-on-wet or wet-on-dry, it has a wonderful crispness that anchors beautiful work across every task and technique. With Stonehenge Aqua, blending is effortless, lifting is no longer a chore. It welcomes masking while never relinquishing the control you both demand and desire. Bright colors dry bright. Blocks or sheets, it is flat paper that dries flat.

Coldpress or Hotpress, Stonehenge Aqua is everything an expensive paper is without the expense. For more information please visit www.legionpaper.com/stonehenge-aqua


 Legion Paper Family of Artist Pads 

(Stonehenge, YUPO and Lenox)

Art is about connections. Between structure and the whole, ideas and the viewer, the medium and the maker. No matter what the piece of art, all of its elements must work together. Everything must be connected.

At Legion, our art is paper. And now we are proud to announce our new redesign, a bold disruptive look that takes three of our papers, new and old, and connects them so you know that you are getting the quality, consistency and substance you demand for your art. It was time to break tradition. To create something the market had never touched upon.

The design-savvy covers strip away the clutter of conventional pad covers, using a varnish text against a solid background color to capture the attention of the artist without being intrusive. Designed for the artist’s eye, the clean, bold type tells you the paper, a beautiful gloss overlay paints an ephemeral verbal picture of exactly what that paper can do. Orange on purple? That’s Stonehenge Light. Red on orange? That’s Yupo Medium. And so on and so forth.

The papers haven’t changed, we’ve just made it easier for you to find them on the shelf and given them a look you'd be proud to leave out in your studio or on your coffee table. Together, all these covers will connect all of our brands under an umbrella that any novice can recognize and any artist can appreciate. And connections are what it’s all about.

We are Legion. We are paper. For more information please visit www.legionpaper.com.
