Hi again Velma, another shared papermakers question if you can answer: is your 'flax' paper fibre from the linen/linseed plant, Linum usitatissimum? It's lovely. Here I make linen/flax paper from recycled linen cloth as we can't grow the Linum plant, and my sheets look different to yours. Thanks and cheerio from Jenny in Australia.

i have moon and book envy - these are wonderfully sublime. almost like the leaves were whispering the story that fills the space that they have left their impression on.and what they are saying is, "happy birthday....and more"

such a beautiful Moon Book !

Velma Bolyard said...

jenny, the flax paper above is not my own, but i believe it is made from flax fiber in strick form, not linen rag, or n.z. flax. linen rag paper is definitely wonderful, but usually finer (in my limited experience)
neki, thanks, there are now two moons-
henrietta, gee, that's a lovely thing you wrote!
m.c. never thought of it that way, but yes!
