‘papercraft’ by gestalten extensively chronicles the current renaissance paper is enjoying among young artists and designers as an experimental material for design. projects from over 140 individuals / collectives are featured over 256 pages and the accompanying DVD.

 

‘paper is arguably the most important material of our civilisation and has continued to serve as a medium for information and ideas’. 

 

in recent years a growing number of designers and artists have deiced to render their work through analogue means, for some it’s a revolt against the incredible influence of digital technologies on the design industries while others are more interested in integrating the latest technological developments to produce their paper works. reading through papercraft the versatility of paper becomes more and more apparent from the most basic techniques of cutting, folding, gluing and collage to more elaborate processes such as embossing and laser cutting.

 

the book is thoughtfully organized into chapters such as: posters and typography, objects and toys, pop-up books and installations allowing you to reference projects with ease. the DVD features a selection of animations and interviews with some of the contributing designers / artists. it also provides you with 18 printable templates to get you started with some of your own paper designs. the quantity and quality of the work included in this book make it a very useful resource for anyone looking to discover just how far paper is being pushed in art and design today.

 

papercraft is now on sale in europe and will be released in the US in october.
