"Cai Lun (?-121), an official during the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) in China, is traditionally regarded as the inventor of paper as we know it today. He revolutionized paper and papermaking by using inexpensive materials such as tree, hemp ropes, tattered cloth and broken fishing nets. These materials created a wet fiber that could be dried out to create paper. Cai Lun's paper was light and thin, strong and inexpensive, and could be mass-produced. This enabled China to develop its civilization through widespread literature and literacy much faster than it had with the earlier writing materials of bamboo and silk. Its introduction also allowed civilizations across the world to flourish"--Page 2 of dust jacket.
