I am curious about this, since it had been my impression that it was
not easy to produce paper in Tibet itself, and I had been told--but
maybe this refers only to a more modern period--that if one wanted a
book printed, one had to provide one's own paper, and then of course
pay for printing (donations, tea, etc.). Was there paper production
in Tibet proper in historical periods?
