Paper has long been an inspiration for artists around the world, from Mexican papel picado to the art of origami which originated in Japan in the 17th century AD to the kindergarten craft project of the pop-up greeting card, which has recently been turned into a fine art by respected artists such as Robert Sabuda and Nikki McClure. Paper Works is a thorough visual exploration of the multitude of ways in which paper can be transformed and sculpted into abstract or realistic designs. The beauty of the medium partly lies in its delicacy, with intricate cutwork created by methods from laser cut to X-acto knife. This title features everything from carved book arts and installation art spanning entire rooms to stunning avant-garde paper couture fashion and animal masks reminiscent of Carnival attire.
