Paper is an item that can either be used to craft maps and books, or sold to librarian Villagers for an emerald per ~30 paper. To craft paper, sugar cane is needed which is often found alongside any natural water. Paper can also be found inside most Stronghold library chests and sometimes in shipwreck chests (as of 1.13). Paper is used with Anvils to repair maps.

Trivia

  • As of 1.3, a piece of leather is also required anywhere in order to make a book, to appear as the cover.
  • On the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, a map can be crafted using 9 paper instead of 8 paper and a compass. However, this creates a map that will not show a player's location.
  • Interestingly, wood isn't used to make paper, as in real life, wood is used to make paper.
  • An empty map uses the same texture as paper, but it has a different colour.
