A decade ago, we were living in a time of hyper-focus on papermaking.
But now we’re living in an era where, thanks to the advent of high-tech printing and the rise of cheap, disposable paper, the world of printmaking is in desperate need of a revitalization.
The resurgence of papercraft, however, has been an uphill battle.
It’s a business that has historically been very difficult to start.
In fact, papermaking was so popular that many countries, including Japan, used to use it as a medium of payment.
But when the printing industry collapsed in the early 2000s, and the paper industry shut down, papermakers found themselves without a viable business model.
And now, it looks like they may have to start all over again.
“Papermaking in the United States was very dependent on the printing market,” says Richard C. DeMarco, a professor of art history at the University of Virginia and author of Paper Making in America.
“And so it was an almost absolute necessity to find a new way of making paper.
But as soon as you start printing, you have to go out and get a new product to put in the presses.
And so in a very short period of time, that’s what we’re going to see.”
DeMarco’s book, Paper Making: The Making of the Modern Art of Papermaking, takes a look at the process of creating papermaking paper products, including how to make a sheet of fabric and how to do it with a saw.
He describes how papermaking came to be, the role papermaking plays in modern art and what it takes to produce a good paper.
To understand the process, we spoke to DeMarco about what it took to make the fabric in his book, the importance of a saw and why it is important to use a saw for paper making.
Q:What is the process that makes a sheet or a piece of paper?
A: You can make it with anything, including paper, which is a material that is quite inexpensive, which allows you to make almost any object you want, even a sheet.
But it’s more expensive than the wood that you’d normally use for that.
The paper itself, however—that’s what’s important, because it is a composite of different materials that are used to make that piece of material.Q
