From playful and whimsical to downright painstaking, paper is resurging among young artists and designers worldwide as an experimental material for design.
This video teaser for Gestalten’s upcoming book, “Papercraft: Design and Art with Paper,” showcases the often bright, punchy and pop-culture-relevant work from artists Jeremais Boettcher, Julien Vallée, Asif Mian and more—who employ techniques as simple as cutting and folding to cutting-edge like embossing and laser cutting. A true best-of collection, the book gathers the most extraordinary creations independent of discipline; all demonstrate reaching towards new artistic heights. An accompanying DVD includes printable templates for creating paper toys plus a curated selection of stop-motion animations.
