Lokta and Letterpress

We received this set of lovely photos from one of our customers, Fernanda Rivera, who took a letterpress class taught by Macy Chadwick. It just goes to show how handmade, eastern papers can work so well with the letterpress technique, to create such beautiful results.  Thank you so Fernanda, for your wonderful work that is both inspiring and insightful!

Book pages were made from dyed lokta paper from Nepal.  Lokta is great for book arts, even box making, and as you can see it prints really well!  Paper Connection stocks a plethora of colors- click here to view.

We now stock amate from Mexico. Who knows, perhaps we’ll encounter a Nepalese artist who creates a book using amate!
