I see paper everywhere. My local bookstore has a rack of papers that are meant to be gift wrap. This is high quality gift wrap printed on archival paper in Italy. I’m not sure I could use this to wrap a gift! Cavallini & Co. has hundreds of designs which they sell as gift wrap and posters, as well as hundreds of other stationery products that are available in retail stores around the country.
Do you sell handmade paper? I’d love to feature it as the Paper of the Week. Please reach out and tell me about it!
In the Studio
Aimee Lee, my guest on Paper Talk, is an artist, papermaker, writer, and the leading hanji researcher and practitioner in North America. Her Fulbright research on Korean paper led to her award-winning book, Hanji Unfurled, and the first US hanji studio in Cleveland. Among other things, we talk about how a prompt to answer “What is your life’s dream?” got her a Fulbright to study papermaking in depth in Korea. Enjoy our conversation!
