Description

Reviews

Understanding paper, from beginning to end, is the subject here. The text begins with discussions on the forest -- how we harvest it, how much of it we have, and why it is necessary to understand the problems associated with it. Next is the basic understanding of the technology of papermaking, separating the fiber from the wood and weaving it into paper for printing. There is discussion on how to buy paper and how to make the best use of it. The chapter "Paper Metrics" is an introduction to the new way of designating paper, with a table showing each grade and weight for a quick substitution reference. Information, without specific recommendation, is given regarding job lot paper. The last chapter covers conservation of our natural resources, concern for the environment, and recycling of paper after it has served its initial purpose.

"A good book is always a treasure, and that's especially true about David Saltman's Paper Basics. It was always ahead of its time, but now the current emphasis on environmental issues and the use of metrics are catching up with it." -- Florence B. Joachim, Printing News, January 1992. "The book is very well written and gives a good background about all aspects of pulping the papermaking and recycling processes, and also about the various paper grades." -- Gopal A. Krishnagopalan, Wood and Fiber Science, January 1998.
