Rohitash Rao was in the studio last week signing his new Sugar 100 edition print Smoking Drinking Bird. The print just dropped today and you can get it for 20% off for the next 24 hours at Sugar.Press.
Smoking Drinking Bird is printed on 100% recycled paper made from a blend of bagasse (sugar cane) and cotton fibers. We call it Sugar Paper, but its real name is Pura Bagassee. The base substrate is made by the legendary German paper mill Hahnemühle, among the oldest and most respected mills on the planet. And the coating was developed by the mad paper scientists at Breathing Color based in Austin, TX., also among the best in the paper industry. This is the first recycled paper I have been willing to use for fine art. It's a game changer!
Pura Bagassee is acid and lignin-free. It has a bright white OBA-free matte coating, and comes in smooth and textured finishes. It's dimensionally stable and has a remarkable ink load capacity.
