Set in Brookston, Indiana, this film introduces papermakers Kathryn and Howard Clark, who build a hand paper mill ("Twinrocker") on their family farm in 1972 -- the first such mill in American since 1929. Through their tenacity, Twinrocker became the foundation of contemporary hand papermaking, with an incredible booming business in the U.S. and abroad.

Reviews:
"...informative in both spirit and fact...[The Mark of the Maker] is appealing and well made, enticing the inexprieienced viewer to learn more about hand papermaking, inspiring the working artist to persist, and recording with an artist's sensibility a proud bit of American history and ingenuity."
