English 241 Paper Museum

 

1)  Goucher’s old rag paper letterhead stationery and its new model: which is heavier weight, and what difference did they add to help people keep paper stocks separated?

 

2)  Southworth high-rag-content paper stocks for 8 ½ x 11 sheets: 24 pound “Fine Granite,” White, 25% Cotton Rag, recycled, with watermark.; 32 pound “Resume Paper” (Ivory, 100% Cotton Rag recycled, with watermark); “Fine Cover Stock,” White, 25% cotton rag, no watermark.

 

3)  160 gm. / ft2 standard acid-free paper (19./12 x 28 inches)  [Note: this is typical of photocopying and printer paper made for corporate and personal use, the substrate on which most of our printed lives are preserved.]

 

4)  Naole 300 pound card stock (20 ½ x 30 inches)  [Note: used for light document covers and free-standing illustrations, business cards, etc.]

 

5)  Silvered finish heavy cotton stock (an examples of modern printing stocks using organic and inorganic materials): “SD QT ZX” (28 x 20 inches)

 

6)  Tai Kingin with metal flake and synthetic fiber insertions.

 

7)  Obaonai Cream Feather: Japanese rice paper and linen combination.

 

8)   Silk Cream 25 x 37 (actually 25 ¼ x 37)—natural vs. machine made products and standardization (Eisenstein).

 

9)  Mughal Rose (19 x 25 ¼ with embedded rose petals and ?vegetable leaves? [LNP suggests tarragon based on faint aroma]

 

10)  Larkspur (19 x 25 ¼ strongly one-sided paper for boards (also see 6, 7, 9 above, for covers and pastedowns).

 

11)  Crossed Lines Grey / B (deliberate web crossing on only side of the paper –a light-weight “wrapping paper,” also not designed for double-sided viewing).

 

12)  Marbled Paper:  “French Shell Blue 19”—note how tactilely distinct the un-laquered leaves are—the fragility of the emulsion on paper format is only protected by limiting users’ contact with it or by coating it with lacquer after binding.
