DARD HUNTER PAPERMAKING PDF

On a spring day in , Dard Hunter wandered into the London Science museum and saw the hand papermaking and type-founding exhibits. The equipment for these crafts — papermaking moulds, watermarks, steel punches, copper matrices, and hand-held typecasting moulds — inspired Hunter to learn more about these centuries-old crafts. The British Museum Library provided Hunter with all the information he could have desired. For the first time, Hunter felt the fine papers — thin but strong — with beautifully textured surfaces. With every book examined Hunter amassed visual and tactile references that led him to a deep and abiding appreciation for the important role paper played in books.
