Canson Johannot paper has a rich history.
The Johannot family came to Annonay in 1634 from Ambert in the Auvergne. When the brothers Mathieu and Barthélémy moved from Auvergne to Annonay, they bought a flour mill in the hamlet of Fayas and converted it to a paper mill.
At that time, the manufacture of paper involved collecting rags, then sorting, grading, and pounding them to a pulp using hammers driven by waterpower. Over time, the Johannot family made many improvements to this process.
The mill at Fayas, and another nearby, remained in the Johannot family for more than 300 years, until 1936. In 1953, Johannot d’Annonay joined the Arches and Marais paper mills, and was soon after joined by Blanchet and Kléber of Rives, giving birth to the Arjomari Group (Arches, Johannot, Marais, and Rives). The Annonay buildings were then sold to Canson & Montgolfier, which, 20 years later, would also join the Arjomari Group.

Comments about Canson Johannot Art Paper:
I used this material for a Printmaking class I am taking this semester. Our professor stresses how perfect he wants the paper we are use for printing on. That is exactly what this paper was: perfect! It was clean and the bends at all.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use it for fine book-making - hand-lettering, painting and printmaking techniques, because the color is both soft and very white to keep colors clear.
Love this paper for etching
By Purdue printmaker
from West Lafayette, IN
I love this paper for printing etchings. The paper is bright white, lovely surface with very slight texture and it is very ink receptive. We've also been using it for mixed media prints combining digital with traditional print media. Great value for professional artists and students. The sticky label on back of each sheet comes off easily, but I'd prefer no label.

By J the book artist
I love this paper! It works beautifully for bookmaking, folds nicely and has a soft texture. And it also brings out the best in pigmented inkjet printers that generally use photographic paper. The colors were brilliant and just as correct as when using the paper made specifically for the printer--but it works wonderfully with charcoal, graphite, and relief printing media as well. Just a lovely paper all around.

Velvet Black with Charcoal
By Jo Bradney
(+) Lovely velvet texture, great smooth paper for charcoal. Will hold a lot of layers and produce rich dark blacks. Will take some erasing without damage(-) Will scratch easily if you get an odd sharp bit of charcoal

A brilliant light paper
from Melbourne, Australia [but on the road]
A fantastic light book paper. Handles pen and ink, pencil and light washes very well. Soft surface will take some erasing, but not as tough as velin arches. Ideal for sketchbooks as both sides of the paper have a similar surface, and being light you get more pages per pound.My only choice for visual diaries and travel journals.Had heard that it was to be discontinued by the manufacturer though...
