Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut is a wonderful new book that I was sooo happy to receive recently! Nothing makes me more excited than a new book about paper and this one is really special.
Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut focuses on all aspects of paper manipulation. The book covers a wide range of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, paper folding, cut-out, pop-up, and installation.
Paper is one of the world's oldest materials and still one of the most widely used and this book celebrates paper in all its glory, providing an analogue remedy to the digital world. Paper profiles over 50 artists and designers who work with the medium, including Robert Ryan and Rachel Whiteread.
Paper also offers a history of the material, from the ancient process of paper manufacture in Ancient China, to the most recent technological advances. From the traditional arts of origami, bookmaking, the humble paper aeroplane and paper plates to recent, groundbreaking product design Paper is a critical look at how paper is used today.
Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut is an interactive, intelligent and comprehensive look at paper today.
I highly recommend this book to you, you will love it in person!
