About This Book

Throughout ancient history, paper has effected profound changes in each society it touched, becoming one of the most important of all cultural media, a status that it retains to the present. In this cultural history of paper, acclaimed paper artist Therese Weber travels to the few remaining places where traditional methods of papermaking have been preserved. Commencing there, Weber takes the reader on a fascinating and colourful journey of discovery of a commodity that many may take for granted, but few fully understand. With notes, bibliography and index.
