Making Paste Papers with Martha Stewart & Mohawk
Last Fall, Mohawk Fine Papers partnered with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., as Supporting Sponsor of the 2013 Martha Stewart American Made program and awards ceremony. As part of the sponsorship, Mohawk conducted a paste paper making workshop in conjunction with Thornwillow Press at the 2013 American Made events held at Vanderbilt Hall, Grand Central Terminal and the Andaz Hotel in New York City.
Smith & Co. Creative had the honor of designing the paste paper instructional brochure that was handed out at the event. This brochure was designed to match an existing visual identity for Mohawk originally created by Hybrid Design. See the online version of the brochure here.
Paste papers have been used by bookbinders and book artists for over 400 years as a way to create book covers and book end papers. Making your own paste papers requires a few simple tools and easily accessible ingredients. For a demonstration, visit mohawkconnects.com/pastepapers
