by Thomas, Peter
Limited to 119 numbered copies printed by hand by Peter and Donna Thomas on paper handmade by Peter using white and black rags with blue pigment. Thomas visited the Lessebo mill in Sweden, a mill which had first started manufacturing paper in 1693. In addition to describing what he found there, Thomas gives a history of papermaking in Sweden. Tipped-in are six samples of paper from Lessebo, one made in 1990 and the rest during various times in the 20th century.
