Papercraft is one of the crafts that was established on Pern during the Ninth Pass prior to the discovery of AIVAS. Its major crafthall is located in Lemos Hold.


A detailed description of the Craft on the basis of the The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern

Papermaking is a sub-branch of the Woodcraft and allied to the Smithcraft. One of the early techniques given by Aivas to Master Wood-smith-turned-Papersmith Bendarek to improve his papemaking was the introduction of a quantity of rag in pulp. A new source of fiber, a swift-grossing plant discovered in the Southern Continent, helped to eke out the supply when the new forests were quickly threatened by the hunger for the printed word. That fibrous plant was also used in the production of thermos bottles, a joint project of the Glasscraft, the Woodcraft, and the Plasticcraft.
