Product description

From Booklist

As interest in papermaking grows, more and more artist-owned paper mills are springing into existence. This popularity, in turn, has spawned a whole new crowd of papermakers intrigued by the craft's environmental consciousness as well as its history and artistry. Hiebert, who confesses she began papermaking with a blender, includes processes and projects that require no mastery of complicated skills and demand only simple equipment. Most of the space in her book is devoted to techniques, from identifying plants to use (elongated leaves that are hard to tear crosswise are best) to troubleshooting if the pulp remains unappetizing. In addition, Hiebert draws on the expertise of others, showing, for example, how Oregonian Marilyn Wold transformed seaweed into paper. One would only wish for more actual process photographs and fewer illustrations. Barbara Jacobs

Review
