A really entertaining introduction to all aspects of papermaking including silk fibre papers. A very easy book to read and to follow with lovely illustrations and a sense of humour. Crystal clear instructions show you how to make paper with enormous imagination. Excellent photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hozelock killer spray 10 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good product . I have used this to spray all the woodwork during our house restoration and recently to clear all the weeds around the house. It can be cumbersome to put onto your back when first filled, but it works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars I adore it 5 Dec 2007
By Tatiana Zakharova - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I knew nothing about papermaking, but after reading this book I felt inspired to make my own handmade paper. Perhaps the most thing I like is that I won't need any special devices to make wonderful handmade paper sheets, everything is available within a reach. This book is full of inspiring projects and photographs, it tells us how to recycle paper and how to make paper from.. vegetables! I never thought this is possible.

I really like this book.
