Every year since 1986, we have published two biannual issues of Hand Papermaking magazine, resulting in a unique 35-year repository of information and inspiration on the art and craft of hand papermaking. Each issue features articles on a variety of topics within the field, including contemporary artistic approaches, craft techniques, historical topics, international developments, and educational initiatives. Articles are written by experts in the field and by notable practitioners who offer fresh and diverse perspectives. Each magazine includes at least one unique sample of handmade paper tipped into its pages.
When we talk about paper, its history, and the practice of making paper, how does the language we use affect how we take in these narratives? In this issue we engage with the terminology that we use, and by extension how our language has framed the ways in which we name, organize, and archive the artifacts, stories, and accumulated knowledge of our field.Purchase Issue
