Artisan is a series of beatifully crafted books encapsulating in words and pictures the essential components of an artistic tradition. As with each title in the series, Paper is written by an expert in the field, able to contribute a unique insight into her oeuvre, describing the tools of the trade and the workmanship involved, and drawing together a gallery of the best examples of her contemporaries' work.
Papermaking is a craft unchanged for centuries. Still carried out today by artisan in small studios, the art of hand papermaking has become incresingly popular over the last view decades. There are seemingly no limits to the artistic versatility of what can be done with paper-from creating beatiful sheets embedded with flowers, to "painting" pictures with pulp, to making elaborate sculptures. Paper is a material that has many hues and textures and an extraordinary ability to absorb or reflect light. In the hands of an artisan, paper takes on an irresistible sensuality.
Gabrielle Falkiner has a run a successful retail store specializing in exquisite handmade paper for more than 20 years.
