Japanese papermaking : traditions, tools, and techniques by Timothy Barrett( Book )

26 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This most comprehensive book on the subject sheds light on every facet of a time-honored craft and offers complete instructions on how to duplicate its exquisite results in the West. Part 1, The Craft in Japan, draws on the author's experience learning to make paper in Japan and documents Japanese papermaking as it has been practiced for centuries. Part 2, The Craft in the West, gives step-by-step instructions for the two methods of Japanese papermaking. Every aspect of papermaking is explained in depth, including cultivation of paper mulberry in the West, weaving the flexible mold surface (su), and evaluation of the finished paper. A chapter on variations answers many common question asked about the process, covering watermarking, making laminations with leaves and other natural materials, using Western equipment in Japanese processes, and making paper for printmaking, book conservation, and other specific uses. A substantial bibliography and glossary further supplement the text"--amazon.com

Calligraphy and handmade paper by Rose Folsom( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Remarkably, given the size of this edition, many of the pieces are hand lettered. There is elegant pen work and brush calligraphy, but also unusual methods of inscribing such as writing with pulp. Lettering methods are sometimes enhanced with techniques such as letterpress, dye resist, photo intaglio, debossing, and suminagashi. Paper rises from its traditional supporting role to offer equal partnership in the realization of the image. For some images, the paper speaks quietly carrying fibers that have cultural, historical, or geographical connections with the written mark. In other works, the paper calls more attention to itself with curious inclusions, bold colors, or a highly burnished surface. Whatever the method, the finished pieces demonstrate the shared importance of calligraphic image and well-made paper. ... The calligraphic content ranges from haiku to short phrases to single letters. Some characters are typographically playful, some harshly rendered, some immediately legible, while others require sleuthing by the viewer. Themes range from epic to intimate, from disquieting to uplifting. The expressions are as personal as a proper name, as ponderous as the nature of truth, or as global as social commentary on war and peace."--http://portfolios.handpapermaking.org/no8/index.htm (retrieved April 24, 2015)
Hungry bibliophiles : an experiment in utilitarian bookmaking by Russell Maret( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loom by Alan Loney( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looms provide the blank canvases for weaving stories, a basic structure of utility and grace that connects the threads of our inner world with those of the natural world in countless and ever enduring forms. This project began when the California printmaker and book artist Richard Wagener asked a simple question - how many threads does it take to make a weaving? From this journey (undertaken over several months on the surface of endgrain wood blocks, with a wood engraver's burin as walking stick) have come sixteen extraordinary engravings, artwork which evokes the mystery and beauty of connection and disconnection, while honoring the elegant simplicity and frailty of the loom and all it represents. New Zealand-born, Australian-resident poet Alan Loney, long-time weaver of words, was asked to respond to this series of engravings, and produced a poem, asking deep questions of connection and exploring "the thread of life itself."--Adapted from the prospectus
