The Sunday Paper, 1 (9),

HiiH Lights makes some of the loveliest lamps in the world (IMHO). They make their papers by hand, airbrush and wax them to perfection. Visit their new website, and they have a retail shop in Portland, OR.



I am on my way to Fabriano, Italy for the IAPMA Congress. Do you use any of Fabriano papers? I recently used Fabriano Tiziano for my laser cut alphabet (Alpha Blocks). Paper has been made in Fabriano for centuries, and they have a continuous tradition that includes incredible watermarks. I look forward to telling you more about it after my visit! 



 I recently discovered the folded paper work of Jun Mitani. I think you will be intrigued!

There’s a new book out about paper, called The Paper Trail: An Unexpected History of the World’s Greatest Invention (great title, eh?) by Alexander Monro. Let me know if you have a chance to read it; I haven’t yet.


About The Sunday Paper: They keep saying that paper will become obsolete, yet artists, craftspeople, designers and creatives are keeping it alive and well. A healthy number of people are even making paper by hand (in some cultures they are still using age-old traditions). How cool is that? The Sunday PAPER is a resource for ideas and inspiration, all having to do with this amazing material. Each Sunday, starting with this edition, I’ll bring you stories and examples of people doing exciting, innovative, and beautiful things with paper, as well as links to interesting paperfacts I’ve unearthed from around the globe. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this paper, Papier, papel, хартия, Papir,紙, Papper, פּאַפּיר… and don’t hesitate to click on the link to leave your comments and suggestions!
