Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide by papermaking artist Hiebert (Papermaking with Plants) goes beyond most books on handmade paper by including detailed instructions for making equipment and for using unusual fibers as a source of pulp. Instructions for both Western-style (European) and Eastern-style (Japanese) papers are covered. Some projects are included, but the emphasis is on processes and techniques. This good, basic manual is suitable for all crafts collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
