What do you do?

Did you know that there are people that specialize in the making of paper?  I am not talking about the person that makes paper as a hobby, I am talking about people that go to university and study it; do their Honours and even Doctorates about paper.  I am sure it has a technical name but I don’t know it.

 

I did not know this until 1999 when I actually met somebody from Finland who was studying towards a Doctorate in paper making.  This amazed me as I has always been fascinate in paper, but would never have thought about studying about it.   I just collected the stuff. 

 

It is odd, I wonder how many other professions there are out there where people study for years to produce something that everybody just takes for granted.
