Forms of Paper

Forms of Paper, a very beautiful book. Fran shared her copy with us last semester.

Given a sheet of paper possessing infinite possibilities, what value shall we give it, and what shall we create of it? We are at a loss, first feeling tempted to do one thing and then something else. This reminds me of the strained feeling I had in my primary school days when I had before me a sheet of mino paper and held brush in hand for the first time in my life. We always face a sheet of paper with a mixture of hope and unrest.

Forms of paper are not meant to last and last; they incorporate the pleasure of using them, and even using them up.
