To create the best paper projects, it's important to start with the best paper, and with this richly illustrated and comprehensive look at papermaking, crafters have a reference unlike any before. The entire creative process unfolds, from the fibers to use to beautiful things to make. A discussion of paper characteristics and properties covers everything from weight and surface to sizing, coatings, and color. Information on the materials and tools includes advice setting up a workshop and a traditional paper mill. All the technical aspects are explained in detail, with special attention to fashioning a sheet of paper, step by step. Put all this knowledge to use on ten magnificent projects, including a Palm Paper Album, a Rustic Notebook with Textured Paper, an Accordion Book, and more.
