Papermaking and book arts people of Instagram! Can you help? Long-term, I’m looking for a small Hollander Beater so I can make my own paper. If you have any leads on one of those, please let me know. Since I won’t be able to get one in the short term, I have a couple of bags of hemp noils that I’d like to get beaten to pulp. I’m in Yorkshire- does anyone nearby have the capacity to beat some fibre for me?
For anyone who saw my little stall at #shipleywayzgoose2019 here are some results of my plastic casting experiment. After having some success with duplicating some large 60pt Stephenson Blake grotesque, I wanted to see what sort of fine detail could be picked up, so thought I’d try out the small Monotype trains. They’re not perfect but, given that a) they can’t be cast by conventional casting anymore and b) that this was done without a degassing chamber on a trestle table in a community centre, the results are ok.
