Last year in June our dear friend David Barhydt Marshall Jr. passed away suddenly at his home in Washington, DC. He was only 64 years old. David had a particular passion for decorated papers, broadsides, and fine press books; all of which he avidly collected, and also produced himself in his spare time at home and at annual summer classes. He was a loyal and generous supporter of Hand Papermaking for decades. He served on our board of directors from 2004 to 2009. Hand Papermaking owes an enormous debt of gratitude to David. We will never forget his huge heart, his easy laughter, and his contagious enthusiasm for handmade paper and its community.
Please join us here as we open the bidding on September 24 (his birthday) and help us celebrate the life and legacy of David Marshall.
