Paper was a fairly expensive commodity during period. Its manufacture is time and resource consuming and as there was little to no mass education (especially during early period years) the demand for paper was not great.

Interesting literature:

  • Dard Hunter (1978) Papermaking: The History and Technique of an Ancient Craft, Dover Publications (reprint)
  • Jonathan Bloom(1978) Paper Before Print: The History and Impact of Paper in the Islamic world, Yale University Press 2001 (reprint)
