Aimee Lee: “This book is about meeting an Oberlin student and watching them grow through papermaking. Most of the paper in the book is made by that student; includes an insert by the artist's teacher in Korea and herself to show previous iterations of the student/teacher abilities. The willingness of teachers and students to share space and time to change each other leads to many possibilities and eventually prepares the student to develop their own voice and vocation.”


Each leaf in this book has written on the verso side the date and place created. A lovely sampling of multiple types of handmade paper with different textures, colors, and fibers visible.
