Paper: A big thank you to Roisin Johns at GF Smith for her enthusiasm and discounted price on the now discontinued wonderful Gmund Alezan Daim Cult 135gsm, a paper which you cannot quite feel digitally, not entirely dissimilar to the skin of someone who's been working manually, slightly wary of the roughness but whose real smoothness transpires from the heart and only the touch can send the shivers of sensation.
