Legendary Quality, Known Industry-Wide
For all illustration media and techniques, Crescent’s Illustration boards feature high-quality surface papers mounted to a rigid gray core. Ideal for professionals as well as students. Cold press boards have textured surfaces and hot press boards a smooth surface.
Crescent Illustration Boards do not have surface roughness and orange peel typical of lesser quality art boards. The new surface improves pen and marker performance.
The whiter core will not distort the color of the surface papers. Board surfaces are brighter and whiter, with less show-through and blotches common with lesser quality boards.
