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."
