In this important and long-awaited book, Timothy Barrett, internationally known authority in hand papermaking and Director of the University of Iowa Center for the Book, offers the first comprehensive how-to book about traditional European hand papermaking since Dard Hunters renowned reference, Papermaking: The History and Technique of an Ancient Craft. This book, which includes an appendix on mould and deckle construction by Timothy Moore, is aimed at a variety of audiences: artisans and craftspeople wishing to make paper or to manufacture papermaking tools and equipment, paper and book conservators seeking detailed information about paper-production techniques, and other readers with a desire to understand the intricacies of the craft. European Hand Papermaking is the companion volume to Barretts Japanese Papermaking Traditions, Tools and Techniques. The first 500 hardcover copies include paper specimens.
