Chartaceous - Of the Nature of Paper

An old sheet of yellowing paper
A captivatingly chartaceous texture by Evelyn Flint

CHARTACEOUS

Adjective. Mid-17th century.
[from late Latin chartaceus, from Latin charta.]

Of the nature of paper; papery.

I rather like the word chartaceous, which makes me think of heavy, old, yellowing paper, the kind that you discover in dusty tomes hidden in your grandparents' attic.

Do please put pen to paper (figuratively speaking) and leave a comment in the box below.

    1. Very true, Beth - old musty books can be a tad sneezeworthy indeed.
