Coming Soon: They Made the Paper at Tuckenhay Mill

The Legacy Press is pleased to announce that it will soon publish the 2nd edition of this wonderfully entertaining yet incredibly informative book featuring the interviews of men and women who worked for many years in the Tuckenhay Mill, a handmade paper mill located near Totnes in Devonshire, U.K. Some of these people began their careers in papermaking as apprentices post-World War I. Peter and Donna Thomas, well-known and respected practitioners in the book arts, live in Santa Cruz, Calif. They made several visits to Tuckenhay and conducted the interviews over a period from 1988 through 1994. The 1st edition of this book accompanied the limited edition portfolio comprising samples of papers made at the Mill. The 2nd edition has been reformatted and expanded to include additional images of the Mill taken ca. 1900, courtesy of Peter Bower.

The book is 120 pages, 40 images in black & white, softcover.
