Cork is quite versatile and can be manipulated to form thin sheets called cork paper. Due to its porous structure, however, it is not usually used the same way as typical writing paper. I was able to find a site that sold cork paper to cover books.
Cork oak trees grow very slowly and growers are “doing [their] best to keep up.” There has been a lengthy moratorium on cork harvesting while the tree population recovers. That is why over the past decade, there have been so many wine bottles that are corked with synthetic stoppers. I have not been able to find if this ban is still in effect or not. Adding another end use for cork would not be a sustainable move.
