What was the Japan paper often used in fine printing during the first half of the twentieth century? I’m asking about the stuff used for the high-end editions of the fleuron, printer’s keepsakes, etc.. Was it the translucent bamboo paper the term is applied to today? Was it an omnibus term for fine papers imported from Japan? Was it paper from the Japan Paper Company in New York? Or could it be any of the above?
Like saying Cuban Cigars, French Wine, or Spanish Ham.
If you want to get specific, you need more details.
For example, you can say Cuban Cigars... but which one: Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta? Also, which kind: Corona, Robusto, Mini?
Talking about Japanese Paper is the same. Kinmari, Kujyaku, Kakumidare, Hagakure?
