A presentation of the new book of the northern writer Elena Antropova “Journey to a Paper Country” was held in Novodvinsk on October 3. The book is a follow-up of the children's publication “Paper Stories”, which has already been loved by many young Novodvinsk citizens.
The Arkhangelsk pulp and paper mill rendered assistance in publishing the book.
The first book of Elena Antropova was published in 2017, also published with the support of the Arkhangelsk pulp and paper mill. “Paper stories” represented the story of two fairy-tale heroes: a boy and a cat, who, together with the reader, become acquainted with the history of paper creation.
Dmitry Zylyov, General Director of Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill, said that this series of books is devoted mainly to papermaking: from the basics of manufacturing production, including modern technologies, to applied forms of using paper, for example, origami. “APPM pursues its strategic interest when publishing these unique books - getting acquainted with the paper in the broad sense of this word, we hope that in the future, some of the children will have an interest in our production,” Dmitry Zylyov said.
At the presentation of the second part of the fascinating paper story came the students of Novodvinsk school number 7. Many of them read the first book and were looking forward to its follow-up - “Journey to a paper country”. “We were reading a “Paper stories” at school and it was very interesting,” said student of the 4th form, class “V” Anastasia Artamonova.
According to Olga Savvina, Administrative Director of the Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill, the mill reprinted this book twice due to the increased demand for the book. “The book is unusual because it has practical value for us,” she believes.
The new book is unique: you can draw and write in it. Also, a separate chapter is devoted to origami. As planned, after reading, children will be able to make beautiful paper crafts. And in order to acquaint pupils with this type of art, the author of the book, Elena Antropova, conducted a master class on origami.
Elena Antropova, author of “Paper Stories” and “Journey to a Paper Country”, emphasizes that the focus is on children and what they can make from paper. “I express my deep gratitude to the Arkhangelsk pulp and paper mill — these books simply would not have been written and published without a mill,” said Elena Antropova.
The book “Journey to a paper country” was published in an edition of 1000 copies. It will be distributed free of charge to the city’s library, schools and kindergartens.
