As the paper patterns become more complex, so does the more abstract discussion of design. Jackson discussion repetition in one or two dimensions, rotation, and other ways of building simple units into complex assemblies. And, as the designs mecome more complex, the distinction between two- and three-dimesional figures blurs. The first exercises just add creases to a flat sheet. Later, though, the sheets form spirals, boxes, tunnels, and other self-standing figures.
After discussions of linear creases, Jackson moves to more organic kinds of folds - soft curves without straight-line folds, or with very few. Even the random elements introduced by crumpling the paper have their place, especially when combined with more rigid design techiques. Even something as simple as folded paper offers endless possibilities for the artist, architect, or industrial designer. Jackson's book offers a beautiful and practical way to explore some of these possibilities.
This book is more oriented to the student and professional artist/designer who is looking for a solid basement in the world of folding, not only paper, but any other material that comes in sheets.
Paul Jackson has witten a treasure of a book. There was nothing like it in the market until this book came out. Thanks, Paul, for sharing your knowledge with us. I personally highly appreciate it.
