BENEFITING: HAND PAPERMAKING INC
Three decades of Hand Papermaking magazine provide a unique repository of information and inspiration documenting our field. Words are precious, but they are not the real thing! To broaden our range of publications to include the most tangible expression of our vocation, we launched our first limited-edition portfolio in 1994. These themed collections of handmade papers are prized in personal and institutional collections, and enjoyed by a wide audience through traveling exhibitions. Most importantly, they provide an archival record, showcasing the work being done in our time by leading paper artists.
To ensure future generations’ access to the exceptional work in our portfolios, we established the HAND PAPERMAKING PORTFOLIO ARCHIVE FUND. Resources in the Fund allow us to set aside 10% of each portfolio edition for placement in esteemed libraries and teaching institutions worldwide. Help us share these cultural treasures by making a tax-deductible gift to our Portfolio Archive Fund. If you do, you’ll get some tangible thanks!
Curious about the shortlist of prestigious institutions ready to accept a gift of one of our limited-edition portfolios? Just ask. Do you have a particular institution in mind? Perhaps your alma mater? Please call (301) 220-2393 to discuss details on how we can pursue a gift in your name.
Since 1986, with support from a generous community of paper aficionados like yourself, our organization has curated and presented the finest work in our field, inspiring the ongoing revival of the craft, and facilitating the emergence of handmade paper as a vibrant contemporary art medium. We’re proud of our past, but focused now on the future. The amazing paper art we’ve amassed must be treasured long after our time. If you agree, please support this Fund by making a donation online, or call (301) 220-2393, or mail your gift of any size to Hand Papermaking, PO Box 1070, Beltsville, MD 20704. On behalf of those unknown who will someday share our passion, thank you!
