  Henry used regular rollers (Speedball, I think) and cut out the design
elements. The designs were rows of simple elements, i.e.: diamonds, dots,
silhouettes of birds and bulls, etc. He also built some kind of jig to enable
him to keep the lines of patterns parallel, but I'm not sure exactly how that
functioned. At one time Oak Knoll Books had some of the swatch books for these
papers; you might contact them to see if they have any left.
