Product description

Paper profiles over fifty artists and designers who work with the medium, from the vast sculpted installations of Mia Pearlman and the delicate paper incisions of Noriko Ambe, to the light-hearted illustrations of Robert Ryan and the forward-thinking furniture design of Tokujin Yoshioka. Also included is an informative history of the material and its role as an art form, from the ancient process of paper manufacture in Ancient China to the most recent technological advances. With a foreword by leading paper artist Richard Sweeney, and essays by origami expert Hatori Koshiro, Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut is an elegant and insightful look at the sumptuous world of paper today.
