Friday & Saturday, 25 & 26 April 1997

HERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT THE CRAFT OF HAND PAPERMAKING
through lectures and a workshop conducted by DARD HUNTER III.  Grandson
of one of the foremost figures in the American book arts tradition,
Dard Hunter III has pursued his family's devotion to the history and
technique of papermaking by hand.  In this seminar, he will recount
the investigations of his grandfather and, through demonstration,
teach participants how to make their own paper.

DARD HUNTER (1883-1966) was a key figure in the American Arts and Crafts
movement.  Both his grandfather and his father were printers in Ohio.
Influenced early by the work of William Morris and Thomas James
Cobden-Sanderson, Dard Hunter traveled to East Aurora, New York, to work
with Morris's American disciples, the Roycrofters.  In 1911 he traveled
to England, where he deepened his interest in printing and developed a
fascination with papermaking.  He afterwards devoted himself to the book
arts, mastering the crafts of type design, papermaking, and printing.  His
researches on the history of papermking are monuments of the field and
include, among many, OLD PAPERMAKING (1925), THE LITERATURE OF PAPERMAKING
1390-1800 (1925), OLD PAPERMAKING IN CHINE AND JAPAN (1932), and
PAPERMAKING BY HAND IN AMERICA (1950).

DARD HUNTER III graduated in Business Management from Asbury College.  He
is the proprietor of the Mountain House Press and Paper Mill and of the
Dard Hunter Studios.  He is also a viticulturist.
