wove paper

A paper having something of a clothlike appearance when viewed by transmitted light. The effect is produced in machine-made papers by the weave of the dandy roll. and in handmade papers by the wires of the mold. James Whatman was probably the first to produce wove paper, and it was first used by John Baskerville in 1757, for Baskerville's type, which was considered to give a superior appearance on paper that did not have chain lines. Wove paper, in addition. does not have laid lines. (69 , 156 , 287 )
