The Story of Paper

Story%20of%20paperYing Chang Compestine and YongSheng Xuan have created a Chinese folk tale complete with mischief and historical flavour. Read the story, then the author’s note in the back which tells of the oldest pieces of paper in the world. There’s also a recipe for garden paper:  homemade paper using ingredients around the house and garden.
