The Duchy of Thurmania is a mysterious island nation known for its “Thurmanite,” a unique material made of fused layers of recycled paper, often from books or maps. Some believe the secrets to finding Thurmania are locked within pieces of Thurmanite. A society entirely of craftspeople, creativity is held in the highest regard. Over the years, many beautiful and intriguing objects have inspired others to find their source.
