Summary: Films shows how to make handmade papers, It also shows the paper made by machine early days.
3,000 years of Human Civilisation and Progress in less than ten minutes on the SIlver Screen. Such is the scope of this short film which takes the hieroglyphics of Egypt, the Cuneiforms of Babylon, the tree-leaf manuscripts of Ancient India and the modern newspaper all in its stride. The discovery of paper in China was a landmark in the onward march of Civilisation and the film goes on to show how the hereditary Indian Craftsmen contributed to the development and perfection of hand-made Paper and Parchment. The machine is gradually replacing the craftsman, but India has a great future to look forward to as far as the manufacture of paper is concerned. Her mills are turning out more and better paper and the War has given a further impetus to their output. 'Page by Page' is an interesting adn instructive short which focuses the spotlight on a National Industry about the potentialities of which every Indian should be well-informed.
