There are few sources for buying papyrus in the USA. This ancient writing surface is made by pounding together two layers of strips cut lengthwise from the rush, Cyperus papyrus. After drying in the sun, the writing surface is smoothed with pumice. This proto-paper was used for over 3000 years before being replaced by parchment and paper.
Some surface texture but accepts the ink well. The strips of reed are readily apparent in this translucent sheet. When you purchase our Egyptian papyrus, there is no extra/paper shipping for the US. Normal shipping charges apply.
I was surprised how well the sheet of papyrus took the ink. The surface is not smooth, so you can't use a sharp nib. I'll try it with a reed pen next.
