We just got our hands on a copy of this excellent book and are excited to share a bit about it with you. Beginning with an overview of the history of papermaking, moving into the tools and supplies needed to make paper, and then providing detailed techniques for making paper of varied styles and types, this book provides a great overview for learning and doing.
There's lots to enjoy, and we especially appreciate the sections detailing "Common Defects and Troubleshooting" and "Setting Up a Professional Studio". The Projects section at the end of the book has beautiful photographs demonstrating different types of colorful papers and there's a helpful glossary of papermaking terms and resources at the end.
If you are eager to learn more about the art and craft of hand papermaking you should definitely check this book out. It's a great new resource that we are glad to add to our list of recommended reading.
Side note- We've had the pleasure of meeting the author in person at past papermaking conferences with the North American Hand Papermakers group. She is a thoughtful and knowledgeable contributor to the papermaking community and we also recommend checking out her website and Instagram.
