Review

"Innovative, interesting, exciting: the work gathered in PUSH Paper--part of a stunningly designed new gallery series--is some of the best paper art being created today. Thirty contemporary paper artists, from world-renowned names to talented up-and-comers, all put their own spin on cutting, sculpture, installations, pop ups, paper toys, and more. A vibrant question-and-answer section with the book's distinguished juror, Jaime Zollars, and a biography of each showcased artist complete this visual feast of paper craft." --Felt & Wire
 
"There are those who stay within conventional boundaries to achieve what is probable. There are also those who push such boundaries to transform what some say is impossible into the possible. The 30 contemporary paper artists featured in this book are part of the latter ... artists who push the limits of paper art to create works that are truly breathtaking. As we admire the works of paper artists like Anne Vought, Rob Ryan, Elsa Mora, Jill Sylvia and many more, we find inspiration to push our own works to new heights." --CRESCENDoh.com
 
“The book, handsomely assembled, explores paper architecture, engineering, sculpture, installations and illustrations that will delight, amaze and confound the viewer.” --American Style magazine
 
"These [PUSH] books are full of truly inspiring, beautiful and interesting artists and works, pushing the boundaries and exploring ideas and concepts and their chosen medium to the full. These artists are incredibly skilled, have gigantic imaginations and work with unexpected materials and subject matter." --Whip Up

This is a book really value for its money, all coloured pages and hard covered at only a fraction of the cost.
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.

The art included in this book is impressive both in its range and its quality. I'd seen some of it around the internet over the last year or two, and am delighted to have high quality reproductions in a more permanent format. Given the price, I was worried that the printing, binding, or images would be of low quality, but it turns out it's just an astounding bargain!

Very incredible, imaginative works of art! (especially the cover). I looked at each (piece of art) innovative technique. It seemed to be the more I looked at each piece of art, the more I felt I was being pulled into that piece of art. Amazon did an especially good job by representing this book. Make certain when/if you buy this book, you give yourself at least 4 hours to go through this book. Get yourself a cup of coffee, a sweet, a comfortable place to sit! and enjoy!!!!

Format: Hardcover
The "push" in PUSH Paper is referring to pushing the limits, which is what the artists who are featured in the book do so well. The curator of the book started a blog to document the creative ideas that artists express by using paper as their medium. There were realistic forms, complex dioramas and elaborate sculptures, all made from paper. The lucious looking pies and chocolates and even pink candy hearts all looked good enough to eat and I was also struck with the intensely colorful paper sculptures with a Mayan look. In another design, snowballs come right out of the paper and roll towards a house that has also risen out of the white paper. In addition to showcasing their artwork, PUSH Paper also has interviews with the artists that give fascinating insights into their personalities and their creative endeavors.

By accident, I tripped across the Paper Forest blog by the "curator" of this book. I have a paper fetish so, of course, I had to buy this book. I LOVE IT! I would think even those who don't appreciate paper beyond its utilitarian use, will be amazed at the collection of artists highlighted. The range of paper arts is far beyond origami or kiragami, and spans from delicate quilling to fun 3D paper models and elaborate paper sculptures to intricate paper cuts with amazing detail. It's a lovely book I could spend hours with. Definitely recommend.

A very nice pictorial book filled with brief interviews by the artists. The medium is nicely handled. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration for your next paper project you really might find the spark in this book.

Eye candy galore and so inspiring. This is not a "how to" book but opens the doors of possibility in creativity.
