Helen Hiebers 'Papermaking with Garden Plants and Common Weeds' is a richly illustrated guide to papermaking. It takes you through the whole process the making of the tools, to harvesting, treating the fibers, couching paper and using the paper for different projects. There is never just one way of doing things, but a basic instruction and then suggestions for several other ways of doing the same.

Helen Hiebert is conscious of safety and points out all things dangerous and risky and how to protect yourself.

This book is a joy to read and a great handbook for making paper.

This is one of several books I have by this author. In fact, I've ordered pulp from her through a mutual contact. Helen is extremely knowledgable in the art of hand papermaking. She knows her stuff and knows how to put it down on "paper" with explicit and easy to follow instructions. Highly recommend for anyone interested in hand made paper from fiber.

Format: Paperback
This book explains in detail a nice history of papermaking and the focus of the book is pimarily plant fiber techniques, which is very educational. But it also describes various art techniques, such as how to do a collage with handmade paper, and using various vegetable fibers, such as carrots for making paper. If you want to learn alot about papermaking and really get into mixing plant fiber and use dyes and different recipes , then you will like this book.

I like this book, but I do wish that it had a few more recipes in it. It's interesting to see what kinds of basic everyday plants can be used in making paper.

There was mostly information about the plants which do not grow here in Finland. That's why half of the book wasn't useful for me.
Another part of the book had many useful tips about papermaling in general.
Worth of price.
