Papermaking in Britain 1488-1988: a short history
Hard cover, 250pp., profusely illustrated with b/w photographs, diagrams, tables and drawings.
The 500th anniversary of paper making in the UK presents an excellent opportunity to survey the development in paper technology over the years and chronicle the milestones in our history. Years that have seen the transition from handmade papers through the traumatic period of the introduction of machines, and the fears that must have been felt by the journeymen who could not possibly envisage the potential explosion in demand, through to the high technology computer controlled environment of today, when we see the Industry re-emerging once again strong, after large sectors were decimated during the 1970s.
