The editorial Cuadernos Papiro has enjoyed a distinctive uniqueness for over a decade. Situated in a beautiful house of historic Holguin and like any initial dream, it began without resources or infrastructure. Its founders, in the nineties of the last century, committed the beautiful madness of creating a workshop to make ecological handmade paper. Those acute times of crisis required urgent solutions to provide the artists of suitable support for their artwork. Then it began a process of laborious and ecological papermaking. Today, more than forty types of papeblanco are produced, with color and recycled with various fibers that meet the most stringent parameters of quality and resistance. To make this paper a tree is not cut, nature is not damaged. In 2000 they took advantage of the dismantling of many old printers by technological change that imposed the digital era, and were acquired for the local beautiful machines with American technology of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, with the dual aim of making books and display them on a rising living museum of graphic arts. The editions are limited to one hundred numbered copies, and each book is designed by leading artists.
