Twinrocker Handmade Paper

Twinrocker Handmade Paper, originally uploaded by LoveLeaf Press.

This past Friday, all of us at the studio took a field trip to Brookston, Indiana to visit and take a tour of Twinrocker Handmade Paper!
Twinrocker has long been our main supplier of handmade papers for our books, designs, and letterpress. They make some of the most beautiful papers imaginable, and often in such large quantities that I feel for the backs of the two paper-makers on staff.

We learned so much about the process, and were duly impressed by their facilities. Their pulp beaters alone (see top image) are worthy of awe for their size and efficiency, but it is truly the kindness, generosity, overwhelming precision, and talent of everyone involved that make Twinrocker such a worthy resource.

We were so thankful for our afternoon spent there, and to Travis, Gerald, and Fran for giving us so much of their time!
