Two handmade paper samples bound in . Corners very slightly bumped. . Dard Hunter (1883–1966) was an American authority on printing, paper, and papermaking—especially by hand, using the tools and craft of four centuries prior. Hunter produced two hundred copies of his book Old Papermaking, preparing every aspect of the book himself: he wrote the text, designed and cast the type, did the typesetting, handmade the paper, and printed and bound the book. A display at the Smithsonian Institution that appeared with his work read, " In the entire history of printing, these are the first books to have been made in their entirety by the labors of one man" (Paper Making)
