European Hand Papermaking: Traditions, Tools, and Techniques

 

Timothy D. Barrett

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 Hunter’s 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 Barrett’s Japanese Papermaking – Traditions, Tools and Techniques.

The first edition (hardcover), which included three paper specimens, is now out-of-print. The 2nd edition (softcover), which does not include paper specimens (and is not available in sheets), will be published shortly. To pre-order, please email:
