Hand Papermaker's Sourcebook

Book Description

Papermaking by hand is carried on professionally by only a small number of dedicated papermakers around the world. Yet the craft of papermaking attracts interest from many areas - bookmakers, calligraphers, artists, teachers, sculptors, and printers. The problem has always been where to buy supplies and machinery. Here, at last, is a book that lists sources of equipment and products worldwide for the hand papermaker. It addresses professionals and amateurs alike, listing sources of supply for all types of fibers, pulps, stampers, beaters, moulds and deckles, vats, felts and presses, dyes and pigments. It also lists papermaking kits, Japanese and oriental supplies, vacuum systems, pulp sprayers, paper information resources, workshops, magazines, and videos. (7 3/4 X 10, 112 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, diagrams)
