GoSee book tip : Papercraft - Design and Art with Paper

Paper is an everyday theme at GoSee – even if we communicate online and consequently without paper. There has been talk of the ‘virtual office’ for years, yet everyday the editors’ desks are piled with printed flyers, look books, catalogues, magazines and invites.

Paper is an integral part of our culture, when it comes to creative expression, it is the first and probably only material available to almost everyone in the world. From Burda sewing patterns to actual dresses, see the GoSee article on paper fashion at the Fashion Museum in Antwerp.

The Papercraft publication shows how designers, aided by various techniques from cutting, to folding and sticking, to layering and collaging, can create accessible artworks using paper and card.

Papercraft presents minimal objects and tiny figures, huge installations and sculptures, as well as three dimensional graphic work, spanning across various design disciplines.

Besides character design, urban and fine art, graphic design and illustration, this also includes fashion design, animation and film. The book presents an insight of the vast design potential of this unique material.

The book is accompanied by a DVD with a curated selection of the best stop motion music and animation films, which were realised using paper works, as well as press out stencils to help you design your own characters and toys.
