A PAPERMAKING PILGRIMAGE TO JAPAN, KOREA AND CHINA.
by Hunter, Dard
First edition, limited to 370 numbered copies and signed by Dard Hunter and the designer, Elmer Adler. This landmark book on hand papermaking in these countries was printed on Japanese mulberry-bark handmade paper and contains 68 photogravure illustrations taken by Hunter on his trip. (See Hunter's My Life with Paper, pp.127-129 for further details of the trip). The book describes the trip and the processes of hand papermaking that Hunter discovered during his journey. The specimens show a wide variety of paper from these three countries and tie in nicely with the descriptions of hundreds of different kinds of paper that he had found, as well as the locations where they were produced. Slight wear to leather spine. Slipcase rubbed. Light foxing to some of the specimen pages.
