was referring to paper the other day and wasn't sure if paper
that has a "laid" pattern is actually considered laid,
even if it doesn't use that name. What do you think?
used the book Paper Pleasures by Faith Shannon to check the
answer to your question. The answer is simple enough. Yes, it
is still considered a laid paper even if it doesn't have laid
in its name. The lines in the paper are created with fine copper
wires on the mold that make thinner deposits of fiber at the
wires. When held up to the light you can see the chain pattern
where the wires were both horizontally and vertically. This
is different than the mold used for "wove" paper that
has a close-textured even appearance.
