Did you know ?
You can make paper out of (almost) anything!
Many recipes are available on the Internet, easy to reproduce at home!
In the 18th century, paper represented 90% of the cost of a book and sometimes the supply of raw material (rags) did not keep with demand. In times of war and during the French Revolution, for example, paper made from rags became scarce. Production dropped and distribution was disrupted. Faced with this shortage, papermakers innovated by using wood-fibre, potatoes… even horse-manure!
Here are different papers, mostly made in the typography workshop, sometimes even by our visitors!
What do you think these were made from?
