Editorial Reviews

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

I've spent hours looking at PUSH Stitchery and PUSH Paper - the artists and works featured are truly inspiring. This books in this series are well designed, with interesting interview questions answered by each artist about their medium, technique and inspiration.

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.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Underground Crafter on January 15, 2012
Format: Hardcover
(Full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Sterling Publishing.)

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.

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.
