Interesting papermaking book

I like this book, but I do wish that it had a few more recipes in it. It's interesting to see what kinds of basic everyday plants can be used in making paper.

Informative Book on Different Techniques

This book explains in detail a nice history of papermaking and the focus of the book is pimarily plant fiber techniques, which is very educational. But it also describes various art techniques, such as how to do a collage with handmade paper, and using various vegetable fibers, such as carrots for making paper. If you want to learn alot about papermaking and really get into mixing plant fiber and use dyes and different recipes , then you will like this book.

Papermaking with Garden Plants & Common Weeds

This is one of several books I have by this author. In fact, I've ordered pulp from her through a mutual contact. Helen is extremely knowledgable in the art of hand papermaking. She knows her stuff and knows how to put it down on "paper" with explicit and easy to follow instructions. Highly recommend for anyone interested in hand made paper from fiber.

Makin' Paper

Great service. Got the book FAST! Have not made paper since I got it but it explains the process extremely well.

Inspiration for everyone

Helen Hiebers 'Papermaking with Garden Plants and Common Weeds' is a richly illustrated guide to papermaking. It takes you through the whole process the making of the tools, to harvesting, treating the fibers, couching paper and using the paper for different projects. There is never just one way of doing things, but a basic instruction and then suggestions for several other ways of doing the same. Helen Hiebert is conscious of safety and points out all things dangerous and risky and how to protect yourself. This book is a joy to read and a great handbook for making paper.
