A pity that most of the pieces only have 1 or 2 pictures dedicated, if there could be more photos focusing on different aspects of the pieces it would have brought out the uniqueness of each art piece.
A good book to get for those that are starting off with paper art or are pepakura hobbyist, this would be a good book to explore the different paper expressions through different forms.
If the book could be bigger at A3 with more pictures and details of each art piece it would have been perfect.
This is a fascinating collection of the work of 30 contemporary paper artists. Although all of these artists use paper, the range of styles and projects is quite diverse. The standardized layout brings together the work so that the book seems cohesive. Each artist is profiled in several pages, including a portrait, a gallery of work against a white background, and responses to standardized Q&A. (One artist substituted her work for her portrait, and another shared a "split image" where half is a drawing and half is a photograph of her face.) As with any collection of this type, some of the work will speak to you and some of it won't, but you will be fascinated by the skill of the artists and the range of objects they create from paper.
This would be a great "coffee table" book - although it is small, it has a vibrancy and there are many amazing images inside. It is also the type of book that artists working in other media could use for inspiration. Considering that book is hardbound and includes many color photographs, it is remarkably inexpensive. (So, if you're frugal like me, it would make a great gift!)
My only minor complaint is that the organization of the book is unclear, making it challenging to return quickly to an artwork or artist you discovered. I suspect that the curator, Jaime Zollars, arranged the work and artists in some way that made sense to her, but isn't immediately apparent to the reader.
