This site is about paper, more precise about how a paperconservator can find out what is IN the paper that is on the worktable. It is called paper gnomon because it wants to be a pointer to everything paper. A gnomon is the name for the pointer in a sundial (and not the plural for gardengnome). Information about my research will be communicated here in the form of pages about fibre microscopy, spot- and microchemical testing of paper and a collection of small articles that will deal with what can be called ‚bycatch’. You can find these under the link ‚bycatch’. You can subscribe to a mailing list when you want to be updated on the posts on this page.
