"This book project is based on the voyage made by JohnTaylor in 1620 where he travelled down the Thames in a boat made from hemp paper. Inside a grey Khadi folder, fastened with a tiny knotted hemp rope is contained a booklet with extracts from the poem 'In Praise of Hempseed' which describes the voyage. Included in the booklet are prints from wood and lino. Also contained in the folder is a small handfolded paper boat with a map of the voyage inside. Both booklet and boat are made from hemp paper, either a copy of a historic paper by Ruscombe mill, or the modern office hemp paper 'tree free'."--Artist's website, accessed April 26, 2018.
