Everything you ever wanted to know about paper sizes

I’ve been spending entirely too much money lately, at a store called Maido in the Palo Alto Town & Country Village. It’s an Asian stationary store. They have some very interesting paper and folders, all of which are based on international paper sizes.

I’ve also been doing a lot of thinking about how I’m going to present the paper I’m writing on the History of Interaction Design, which has prompted me to consider buying a large format color laser printer.

During my research, I found a handy page by Markus Kuhn that answers just about every question I had about International Standard Paper Sizes.
