Jang Yong-hun, National intangible property holder of hanji making

Jang Yong-hoon was appointed in 2010 as the national intangible cultural property holder of papermaking in Korea. He was the Gyeonggi-do provincial holder for many years prior to his national designation. The father of my teacher, Jang Seong-woo, at Jang Ji Bang, helped me “get” Korean sheet formation technique when I struggled at the vat. He has since passed away but will always be remembered as one of the last traditional hanji makers of the pre-internet age.
