Description

Watermarking paper dates back to before the 1200's. Watermarks are very useful in the examination of paper for dating, identifying sizes, trademarks, locations and the quality of paper. Modern hand papermakers have expanded the use of watermarking paper to new heights such as displaying their handmade images and artwork, some of which are visible without backlighting. This exhibition of watermarked handmade papers will become part of theMorganConservatoryarchives.
