In amongst the recent attic clearance was a heavy filled hand-loomed linen sack with a drawstring. I couldn`t wait to get it back to look inside......
I wasn`t disappointed.....
reams of hand made 18th century parchment paper.
Large pages of tactile creamy parchment.
Were they bound for a bookmaker or a notaires clerk who would sit by candle light and scribe with his quill and pot of ink?
I am listing some of the reams tonight. Such a wonderful find and amazing old paper for any period projects.
Will you write by twinkling candlelight too?
A la prochaine mes belles
