Re: [BKARTS] Onion Skin?



Jesse: onion skin was used to make multiple copies on a typewriter with carbon sheets to transfer the impressions of each key stroke.

It's thin paper.

The "onion skin" is an analogy, a figure of speech.

Hello List.

Has anyone here ever heard of, or worked with onionskin paper? Is this an actual paper made using onion skin, or it just approximates onionskin? Similar to elephant hide paper? Is there such a thing?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you all,

Jesse
