In the early 1960s, when the craft of papermaking was at its height, many craftsmen were doing it on their own.
They had no experience, and they were often not even licensed, according to the National Association of Papermakers.
So a group of papermakers were formed, including one who would go on to become a national hero, the late James Tompkins, the group’s founder.
“You have to get a license for all these craftsmen who have never been in a craft,” Tompkin told the Wall Street Journal in 2008.
“If you are a craftsman who is not licensed, then you are not going to be able to do your job.”
In the early days, the most common type of paper was the “mosaic” — a single sheet of paper that is made up of three different layers of paper.
In the 1960s and 1970s, the art of making a mosaic was called “printmaking.”
Tompakys paper was made with three layers: one for the base, another for the top and a third for the sides.
The paper was usually made by rolling up the layers, putting them back together and folding them in half.
But as the craft expanded, a lot of people started to use a papermaker’s hand to help the craftsmen do the work.
For many of the early papermakers, the first step was to learn how to make paper.
That’s when they learned how to apply the paper to their papermaking decks.
“It was a matter of knowing how to fold and twist the paper, how to roll it, how much to put on the sides and how much on the bottom,” Tommaso said.
Tompkins’ work in the late 1960s was featured in a PBS documentary called “My Papercraft,” which told the story of a group called the “Paper Craftsmen of America.”
It also included interviews with other famous artists who worked in the business.
One of those artists was a painter named Joe Piccard.
Piccard, who died in 2016, made the most popular papercraft decks in history, which included paper that was used in advertisements, greeting cards, greeting booklets, posters, calendars, greeting card stock and other products.
“Joe Piccard was a true pioneer in the art and craft of creating beautiful, functional paper for his clients,” Tompsons daughter said in a statement to ESPN.
“He was an original and gifted craftsman.”
In 1960, Joe Piccards most popular deck made a lot more than the other two decks in his collection.
In addition to being the first to make a mosaic of a sheet of a paper, the paper in his deck was also a popular tool for making greeting cards.
“The best thing that ever happened to Joe Pic cards deck,” according to Tommassons daughter.
“His wife was so happy because they were all working on a card for her.”
Joe Piccards deck is still used to this day.
“I am really happy to have a copy of that,” Toms said.
“My daughter’s favorite card is a card from Joe Pic’s deck.
It’s one of her favorites.”
Joe’s wife, Patricia Piccard of St. Petersburg, Florida, is one of the few people in the world who knows how the deck works.
Patricia said she has never seen the deck, and her daughter is still trying to find out.
“To see a copy, I think it’s amazing,” Patricia said.
Joe Picards deck was one of many in the collection of a man named John K. Tompassons, who is best known for making paper that used to be known as the “Frostman’s Deck.”
The Frostman’s deck is made of five sheets of paper, with one of them being the base.
The other two layers are the top, the middle and the bottom.
It was used by artists and designers for nearly a century, and it’s one reason why the deck is so popular.
“That’s why people think of this card as iconic,” Patricia Piccards daughter said.
But it was not just a popular deck, it was also among the most valuable cards in the deck.
In 1960, a man called Robert F. Kennedy, who was a United States Senator from Florida, was one the wealthiest people in America.
His son, Bob Kennedy, is the Chairman and CEO of the Tompons paper company, which is based in St. Augustine, Florida.
“It’s a great deal of money,” Bob Kennedy told CNN in 2016.
“What we don’t know is how much the cards cost, how many people were selling them.
It is a very rare and precious thing.”
The Kennedy family sold more than 10 million copies of the card in the United States in the early 1970s.
“All of our cards were sold on the secondary market,” Tomas said.
In the years following World War II,
