{Everyday Inspiration} Papercraft …

Being that Chris loves to work with paper, books, & cardboard lately, I gave him a book called, “Papercraft: Design and Art with Paper” for Christmas this year. It truly was a gift for him- I saw the look on his face when he saw this book in person & knew I had to get it for him. With that being said- I LOVE this book! I’ve been patient and made a point to not jump on it the minute he opened it up. However, I couldn’t  wait anymore. I cracked the book open last night and barely scratched the surface. HOLY MOLY this book is just oooooozing with inspiration & amazing work! It really does have a wonderful variety of papercraft art represented as well. I thought I would give you a peak of some of the artists featured. Seriously, there is sooooo much more & I could go on for hours. But here is a start….








I’m sure I’ll be posting about new discoveries as I plow through this book. It’s about 250 pages with a dvd included! Oh joy… this will be a nice little break I think. I have to say, the piece called “Invisible Cities” by Helen Friel, was something that made me think a lot about this blog. 

“She created the work based on a place described by Italo Calvino in his book ‘Invisible Cities’.  Each time a new relationship is made, the inhabitants run colored string between buildings.”-  Papercraft.

I love that concept and think it would be fun to imagine or realize color strings representing all of the relationships this blog has brought me. Just a thought for now. But it would be interesting to start a project like that  being that it’s the beginning of 2011. So if you are reading this blog. Let your voice be heard- you may just become a piece of colored string…
