Trace the path from papyrus to paper in this unique history museum. – The History
Founded in 1936 by late author, book designer, world traveler and paper historian Dard Hunter, the museum's first home was the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the Atlanta venue, permanent exhibits explore the art, science and history of papermaking from the forerunners of paper to today's top technology. The museum is located in the Institute of Paper Science and Technology building.
An exotic 19th-century Burmese palm leaf book is just one of the treasures in a multi-room display that tells the story of paper's evolution. The collection documents the complete history of papermaking since its invention in c. 200 B.C., reaching back in time to include pre-papers like papyrus, beaten bark cloth, parchment and vellum. A small gallery is reserved for exhibitions by contemporary artists who work with handmade paper and for shows featuring the cultural traditions of papermaking.
