Unfortunately, since the death of John Balston, there is no-one associated with the site who can answer questions about paper.

If you do have a query, you might find help through one of the sites listed on the Links page. In particular you might try the questions page on where questions can be asked by visitors to the site of the International Association of Paper Historians.
