Glossary of Printing Terms:
Deckle Edge

Produced in hand-papermaking by drainage under a wooden frame surrounding the hand mould.

The rough edges on hand-made and some machine-made papers were originally
considered an imperfection.

The deckle edge came back in fashion with the handcraft revival in the last decade of the 19th century.
