Papermaker is the skill associated with the papermaking labor. Papermakers can make sheets of papyrus paper directly from papyrus reeds at a farmer's workshop, or by pressing slurry at a screw press. Paper is used to produce books such as codices, quires, and scrolls.

Note: Treating animal hides with milk of lime will produce parchment, but this is performed by a Tanning dwarf.
