this is adapted from a longer review at my blog liberal sprinkles

Paper comes to life in so many ways in this book. Art installations, portraits, animation characters, 3D posters, cutouts of figures, people, animals and objects big and small, Papercraft: Design and Art with Paper is full of fun examples of what can be crafted with paper.

There are numerous works I recognize, including some from Jen Stark and Ferris Staverman, whom I've blogged about. There are also pieces from other artists whose works I've seen on the Internet or pinned at Pinterest, so in some ways, this book was very familiar to me.

But there's a huge lot of other works that I was introduced to. A wide variety of works in multiple structures and formats are presented. Some are functional, others purely decorative; some are playful, others thought-provoking. Nothing is boring or common. The works exude creativity - there's lots to grab your attention and give you ideas of how much can be created from a flat material.

My only complaint is there's very minimal information - if any at all - on the works and the artists. But there's still plenty of eye candy to enjoy.

Paper is arguably the most important material of our civilisation and has continued to serve as a medium for documenting information and ideas. Today, paper is enjoying something of a renaissance among young artists and designers worldwide as an experimental material for design. There is also an insatiable concurrent trend for designing three-dimensional handcrafted objects as documented in the books Tangible, Tactile and Hidden Track.
