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 (aka Unknown Map).
  • Interestingly, wood isn't used to make paper, even though in real life, wood can be used to create paper.
  • An empty map used the same texture as the old paper, but it had a different color. This was changed in 1.14.
