Paper & Book Arts links

A number of members of this forum (me being one of the worst examples!) are nuts about paper arts and book arts. Over the years, there have been a number of good threads in the forum with links to sites and information on these topics, so I've combined them into one thread and stuck it at the top of the forum. If you have any great links to add, please do so!

Check this out; I only wish there were more photographs of his creations!

Re: Origami with a twist...

WOW, who would have guessed an ancient art would have evolved for such practical purposes. I can't tell you how many times I wish I had software to figure things like (much simpler) out for me. Thanks for the link.

Re: Gorgeous paper folding art

This is such a beautiful site. The work is just awesome. I don't know what I like best but the parrots are so interesting in the way the whole piece seems to be interwoven.

Re: Gorgeous paper folding art

The white herons are my favorite, too. Delicate, detailed work. Thanks for sharing the link.
