This monothematic collection of a hundred cultural-historical essays on the social use of paper, its forms, practical and aesthetic impact, ways of its use in different periods, activities, means and life situations.
Although books, newspapers, magazines and other documents are primarily viewed as "paper items", the handwritten and printed messages, which they contain, preserved and passed from one generation to another, from the past to the present, are not ignored.
Intended primarily for experts in the field of humanities, but also for anybody interested in new views of current topics in the field of the cultural history.
