    Best all around book about the entire papermaking process This book takes one through the entire process of making paper. It describes how to process the fibers, how to put together the equipment, how to make paper from plants, etc. helen has painstakingly described each step in simple easy to follow and understand language. Even for people who have made paper before, this book will become your bible and companion when you venture into making paper. In addition, Ms Hiebert provides guidlines and projects for using the paper that you make. I have several books on papermaking and this one is the best.

    Lives up to its title This book contains probably all the technical information you will need to make your own paper from any number of materials — whether you are starting by recycling paper from your waste bin, or going out into the wild and harvesting the plants yourself. Diagrams are included for most equipment, from simple deckles to elaborate vacuum presses. Included also are the most extensive instructions I’ve ever seen on how to do large-scale casting, via armature and otherwise. If you are seriously interested in papermaking, you cannot go wrong with this book.If you are already making paper and looking for project ideas, there are a few, but that isn’t really the point of this book. Includes an index and resource guide
