A fine, old video about paper

The other day while doing research on a project, I came across a website operated by Steve Varvaro, a now retired but long-time paper salesman in New York.  His website includes a link to a 1990s video created by Neenah Paper Company titled “Still Life: A Celebration of 100 Years of Paper Making.”   You can find it at https://youtu.be/Ixc6JoejGIs  Mr. Varvaro used this video in the introduction to the classes  he taught on paper.  The video is intriguing though I did find it a bit difficult to understand in some places–probably the fault of my deteriorating hearing rather than anything to do with the video.  For those interested in paper and the role paper has played in civilization, this is something you will enjoy.

Until later. . .
