Paging Through History: Mark Kurlansky in Conversation with Ella Morton

Paper: it's one of the most common materials in the world, yet its impact on society is anything but ordinary. In his book Paper: Paging Through History, author Mark Kurlansky weaves together the unconventional history of paper and the universal human need to document and create through writing. Editor at Atlas Obscura, Ella Morton, joins him in a conversation about how sometimes the most fascinating things are the ones right under our noses.
