The Chinese Invent Paper
look at the historical development of paper...
105 A.D.: Frustrated at the problems of writing on heavy bamboo strips, the Chinese
turned to costly silk. Searching for a better solution, Emperor Ho Ti's court
official, Ts'ai Lun got inventive. Using a bizarre concoction of mulberry tree
bark, cotton rags, and fish nets combined with water, Ts'ai produced the world's
first known pulp. Once dried in the sun, Ts'ai's new creation made for an improved
writing surface. For hundreds of years, papermaking was a carefully guarded secret
Assorted paper trivia..
