Glossary of Printing Terms:
Antique Book Paper

A book paper generally produced in the United States from bleached chemical wood pulp with a large amount of short-fibered pulp and given a soft, relatively rough finish.
In Great Britain it is produced largely from esparto pulp.

Antique book paper varies from lightweight to relatively heavy weight; 60 pound, basis weight antique bulks approximately 330 pages to the inch. Many books, and particularly novels, are printed on this type of paper, especially those containing only textual matter and/or bold line drawings.

Antique papers generally are not suitable for fine line drawings or half-tone illustrations.
