Description »

Entertaining, illuminating, and irresistible, this recently published book masterfully guides us through paper’s inseparability from human culture. Basbanes writes about paper, from its invention in China and its travel through the Middle East, Europe, and to North America, writing about the ways in which paper has been used to record history, make laws, conduct business, and establish identities. Basbanes also writes of his travels to get to the source of the story—to China, along the Burma Road, and to Japan. He writes about accompanying Elaine and Donna Koretsky on one their papermaking expeditions to China, and also interviews a number of our eminent papermaking friends.
