Paper Craft Inspiration

I don't normally buy books sight unseen, but when I read about this recently published compendium of contemporary paper crafts by Robert Klanten, I knew that I had to have a copy of my own. I played the 'it's nearly my birthday and I promise I won't ask for anything else' game that Leo's are so good at, and it worked. Jack is a very kind and obliging Scorpio. Here are are few images from the book, which covers every paper technique you could ever hope to see between two covers: collage, quilling, paper animation, models, advertising and product design, toys, books, installations...

I'm fairly sure this piece is sitting on a mirror,
but nevertheless it is a spectacular feat of paper engineering!
Here's one of Ingrid's pop-up books:

Needless to say, I am over the moon to own a copy of this book and I'm sure I'll be dipping into it many times over the next few months of exhibition preparation. I have a couple of writing jobs to finish during the next fortnight, so I'll be back in early August with some new paper goodies to show.
Have a great weekend.

Happy birthday and lucky you.
I was drooling over that very book myself on Upon a Fold blog just a couple of days ago. Lovely, I'm happy you will get to savour it ...and we readers will get to enjoy the fruits of your inspiration.
