Playing with Paper : Illuminating, Engineering, and Reimagining Paper Art, Paperback / softback Book

Playing with Paper : Illuminating, Engineering, and Reimagining Paper Art Paperback / softback


Well-known papermaker and artist Helen Hiebert has assembled a delightful and exciting collection of paper techniques and projects, including a gallery of work from leading paper artists that expands on the ideas explored in the book.

The techniques featured range from pop-ups, model making, and paper cutting, to book arts, quilling, origami, folding, and pleating.

There are even a few projects that involve flying paper.

The versatility of paper rivals that of any medium: it can be torn into pieces or burned with a match, yet it has the integrity to grace graphic design, fashion, and even architecture.

Projects include window stars, shadow ornaments, a kirigami butterfly, a po-up castle, paper rings, a piece of cake, a piano hinge photo album, a folding screen, a table runner, an inflatable ball, a paper hot air balloon, a reusable book cover, four foldable one-sheet books, party lights, a nightlight cover, a diagonal pocket cover, a Sode kite, and an expanding file folder book.
