Summary

More than 2000 years ago, paper was invented in China. Over the past two millennia, this essential technology spread throughout the world. Elaine Koretsky has traveled in China for more than a quarter century to visit remote papermaking villages and document how paper is still being made by hand. Killing Green refers to the processing of bamboo, the primary fiber used by Chinese hand papermakers. This book not only describes the people, places, and techniques witnessed by Koretsky, but it is also an entertaining biography of a intrepid scholar who has devoted her life to papermaking by hand.
