Have you always wondered how antique paper was made ? today's your day ! swipe left πŸ‘ˆ
the #watermark is created by a fine wire strand sewn on to the metallic mesh of the mould on which paper is made. during its formation in the mould, the paper (made of cotton or linen rags) will be slightly thinner where the wire strand is attached. the shape left by the wire is therefore lighter than the rest of the paper. watermarks were used by the papermaker to identify their mill as the source of the paper or to mark particular brands, qualities and formats. you can see how precious these informations can be to the book historian. one example : a scandalous and subversive book printed under a false bibliographical address (false printer's name, false city -preferably abroad). you can find out where it was printed, and even who printed it, thanks to the watermark (among other informations such as the typographical ornaments etc). the watermark in this case should not be sought in the flyleaves because these might have been added much later by the bookbinder.
these pictures were legally taken at the paper mill museum in basel, a great printing museum where you can learn and practice.

After having the first signature resewn & a split in the blind-tooled pigskin spine repaired with toned kozo, the “concordantie biblie canonum” is almost finished, but while measuring it for an enclosure we noticed a few different things to share for #watermarkwednesday before it goes back to #specialcollections.

Part of a three-part watermark found in the tissandier collection, bought by the library of congress in 1930, concerning the history of early flight in europe.
likely from the royal house, because of the three lilies, the traditional coat of arms of the french monarchy.

i've worked this year on a method to enhance watermarks with transmitted light and manipulations on photoshop. if you want to know more about it, i got you covered :

John henry nash offering for #typetuesday and #watermarkwednesday .  1924 migratory books, haunts and habits.  one of five hundred copies printed privately for ernest dawson by the venerable john henry nash on his unicorn watermarked paper. a humorous treatise on books that go to the marketplace after a collection is dispersed.  lawson was a bookseller in southern california, establishing his shop in 1905; i imagine these were sent to his customers.

i'd recommend reading the paragraph i zoomed in on (swipe left): i, obviously, greatly appreciate "migratory books". i also appreciate john henry nash's layout and design.  i don't come across many modern (none, really) works that approach his techniques.  perhaps it's just stylistic, and times have moved on, but i'm stuck in the past (big surprise). i wish more modern books would adopt a similar style, that borrows heavily from the past. i like it.  but i learned long ago that my tastes don't align with profitable trends.

and would someone please write john henry nash a wikipedia article!  he deserves one.  if there is one, i couldn't find it.

migratory books sold the day i listed it.  i must not be the only one who appreciates nash's works.

It’s #watermarkwednesday! and here’s a lovely one from a gorgeous #woodblock i’m working on now, by a french artist who lived and worked in japan. this particular print is unusual, as it’s of cactus plants and blooms. 🌡
.
i don’t know for sure, but it seems to me this was a personal #watermark of the artist. .
