This week, I’m taking a detour from my usual format to showcase a very special publishing project by fellow ThingsAsian writer and artist Elizabeth Briel: an illustrated travel book filled with stories and surprises from her hunt for handmade paper. It’s called Paper Pilgrimage: Bombs, Bandits, and a Vanishing Art in Southeast Asia, and will be released by ThingsAsian Press next year.
Her special project is an additional limited run of her book, made with handmade paper and bound in silk. Join me throughout the week as I focus on Elizabeth’s unique publishing project in more detail.
And at the end of the week, I will also be posting a film recommendation and a Southeast Asian recipe to go with it.
