The medium to dark cream paper is so thick and luxurious. Definitely great for art prints. Definitely some real fabric (rag or linen) content to the paper. Each print has a real WEIGHT to it. I find myself just laying a hand on the surface of the paper, which in itself is not your everyday experience, by far.
If you can't find a place for these in your house, even hanging some by wire and paper or metal clips on a kitchen wall would make you do a double take every morning. They are just that beautiful. The only drawback is the sheer size of the box and the prints themselves which are huge. If you have a studio apartment, this may make a good coffee table, if you don't mind ruining it all. If you have a good place for storage, you'll be happy. These are not going to fit in the average tallest portion of a book shelf.
