The importance of grain of a paper

Firstly ~ paper expands when wet. It has greater expansion across the grain.

Secondly ~ paper curls when damp.

Thirdly ~ paper folds better with the grain.

I shall expand on these paragraphs, with illustrations, when I get the time later in 2021.

More about this will be available under several headings. Craftworkers need to know all about it. Bookbinders do know all about it ~ it is one of the reasons why their training requires years of experience. Woodworkers also have to learn and respect and allow for grain ~ for many of the same reasons. Litho printers need to know about it.
