HASH(0xa3cd563c) out of 5 stars I adore it Dec 4 2007
By Tatiana Zakharova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I knew nothing about papermaking, but after reading this book I felt inspired to make my own handmade paper. Perhaps the most thing I like is that I won't need any special devices to make wonderful handmade paper sheets, everything is available within a reach. This book is full of inspiring projects and photographs, it tells us how to recycle paper and how to make paper from.. vegetables! I never thought this is possible.

I really like this book.
