Welcome to Berta's Papers where you will find all the endpapers I make of rice starch paste.

The decorative technic of paste papers goes back to the 17C. Since then it has been used for book exterior decoration and protection. It shares the spotlight with other decorative methods such as marbling, xylography, gilding or brocade.

All papers are available at
