Indian Manuscript Paper

Tuesday, 19 November 2013

Oooh, the excitement of an early xmas gift to myself...


paper over a 100 years old.... 
19th century accounts records from Rajastan, NW India....


long, narrow sheets of Sunn hemp paper that was burnished by hand 
using a smooth stone...


See those holes at the top? 
Batches of paper were threaded with string & hung up, ready for use...


long columns of entries by various hands will provide a great textural background
for a flurry of ideas zinging around my in brain...


I bought rather a lot & have some some
available here
