Paper of the Week: The Sunday Paper & Paper Talk
On the even days during December, I’m highlighting the companies that are sponsors of the Twelve Months of Paper Calendar. These companies work hard to bring us beautiful papers, paper products, paper journalism, paper- and book making tools, paper history and more. Today, The Sunday Paper (aka this blog you are reading now and Paper Talk (my podcast series) are the sponsors!
I need your help! In 2018, I am planning to feature an artist or organization that is working with handmade paper every week on the blog. Please send me your ideas, and better yet send me a link to a website (yours or someone else’s) so that I can get my list started! At the point, I’m curating Paper Talk, but I’ll let you know when I need suggestions!

Here’s a real (as in wow, this is how hard life can be and the obstacles that can get you) story about the struggles of Faith Bartley, a woman trying to re-enter society after prison (while helping others trying to do the same). And yes, it has to do with paper!

Whoa, this is pretty cool, although this “tissue paper” is more tissue than paper. This new kind of bioactive tissue paper is made of materials derived from organs that are thin and flexible enough to fold into an origami pig. The technology could potentially be used to support natural hormone production in young cancer patients and aid wound healing.
