Hand Papermaking Portfolios

On display are eight collaborative portfolios published by Hand Papermaking Inc. They showcase the wide range of creative possibilities inherent in the art of handmade paper.  The examples of paper are made from a variety of materials such as cotton rag, abaca, yucca, and other plant fibers.   They demonstrate the different roles that paper can play in printed works, such as serving as a passive substrate, being an active participant, incorporating a symbolic function, and creating an atmosphere or environment for the text.

The exhibit runs from November 15, 2016 – February 28, 2017
