The Paper Maker
How to make handmade paper from fruits and vegetables
The author shows how the inedible parts of common fruits and vegetables, normally considered too weak for papermaking, can be used to create delicately coloured and scented art papers. the book details the basic materials and equipment you will need to start - all of which can be found in any kitchen - while illustrations and photographs explain the basic techniques for forming and drying the paper sheets. Now you're ready to delve in the garbage and experiment: over 50 pages of recipes illustrate the different colours and textures you can achieve with corn husks, banana peels, asparagus ends, pineapple tops, broccoli stems and grapefruit peel. An additional section describing methods of embellishing your paper.
