For those that do not understand the power of handmade materials.. I give you exhibit A. This is an origami book form. I made a demo book (the one on the left) out of regular Canson paper and then created the same book form out of handmade paper (the one on the right). The blue paper has been digitally printed with a map of constellations. Because of the material, and partly due to its scale, the handmade paper has a buoyancy and fluidity when it is opened that is very different than the crisp, hard commercial paper.
