Re: [BKARTS] Twinrocker video --- was Shipping large sheets of paper

If you do not know about a video from the 1990's about papermaking at Twinrocker, all book arts people should. It is NOT a video about how to make paper, but more a personal view of what a particular paper means to a printer, a calligrapher, a watercolorist, etc.
The video was nominated for a Academy Award, but missed the actual title by a few votes. None-the-less it is a spectacular telling of paper and how it can work for the very best end result.
I assume that Twinrocker still has copies, or it must be available from somewhere/someone for rent.

I agree that Twinrocker paper is wonderful! And Arches Text Wove has attributes that I have not discovered in other papers- i.e. the ability to come back after much battering. It will lie flat again even if you crumple it up if you just moisten it and lie it flat.
