This book takes one through the entire process of making paper. It describes how to process the fibers, how to put together the equipment, how to make paper from plants, etc. helen has painstakingly described each step in simple easy to follow and understand language. Even for people who have made paper before, this book will become your bible and companion when you venture into making paper. In addition, Ms Hiebert provides guidlines and projects for using the paper that you make. I have several books on papermaking and this one is the best.

Lives up to its title Dec 31 2005
By Jane E Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book contains probably all the technical information you will need to make your own paper from any number of materials -- whether you are starting by recycling paper from your waste bin, or going out into the wild and harvesting the plants yourself. Diagrams are included for most equipment, from simple deckles to elaborate vacuum presses. Included also are the most extensive instructions I've ever seen on how to do large-scale casting, via armature and otherwise. If you are seriously interested in papermaking, you cannot go wrong with this book.

If you are already making paper and looking for project ideas, there are a few, but that isn't really the point of this book. Includes an index and resource guide

This IS the ultimate guide Oct. 28 2005
By christine harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have many books on papermaking and this is the one I always turn to when I am making paper. It has clear instructions for beginners and experienced papermakers alike and the little info boxes in the margins are especially helpful. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to any would-be papermaker.

Great for first time papermaker. *follow up* Jan. 6 2007
By G. Hersey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this book as a gift and I really like it. I am a brand new papermaker and was able to use this book right away and make a recycled paper batch that looked great. The details about making a mould and presses really helped. I recommend this book not only because it has the basics but it also has intermediate concepts.

Update 10/08 I guess the book didn't inspire me enough to keep going with it. After my first review I've only picked it up one other time.

perfect book for beginners June 14 2006
By J. Staton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book assumes you know nothing about hand making paper. It explains each step and gives you the terminology.
