Papermaker of the Week: Cathleen Baker
This is a new column. If you’re a papermaker and would like to be featured in the coming weeks and months, please fill out this form. I’d love to hear from you!
I had the pleasure of interviewing Cathleen Baker on Paper Talk recently. We talk about how she moved to the U.K in 1968 where she eventually became the paper conservator for the Courtauld Institute Galleries in London, and how handling the old papers in the documents she was preserving sparked an interest in paper. Among many other interesting projects, Cathy wrote the biography of Dard Hunter, which involved moving into his home in Chillicothe, Ohio (which his grandson now owns). Cathy publishes her own work, along with award-winning books about the history and technologies of papermaking, printing, and bookbinding by others under her imprint, The Legacy Press. Enjoy our conversation!
