Editorial Reviews


“Irving Harper…does incredible things with paper—abstract and realistic, monochromatic and colorful, fanciful and farcical—has been collected in the stunningly designed Irving Harper...” ~New York Times Book Review

“…a sprawling love letter to an under-appreciated design master, a man who not only birthed some of the last century’s most inspiring work, but also made time to craft jaw-dropping works of art from common materials…filled with beautiful photography of Harper’s art and his home, this book paints a lovely portrait of a quiet but wildly creative man and his work.” ~Design Sponge

“Works In Paper
surveys Harpers’ unparalleled creativity in the form of nearly 300 paper sculptures produced as a pastime over a forty-year period. Rarely seen, these works have been carefully restored, documented, and assembled for the first time. His ingenious craftsmanship elevated humble materials like construction paper and toothpicks…”

“When he wasn’t designing some of the most iconic mid-century pieces of the day, Harper was creating beautiful paper sculptures. The stunning pieces he produced are the focus in Irving Harper Works in Paper.”~ Design Observer

"...not only presents an array of these amazing pieces, but also provides an enlightening survey of his diverse career" ~
Elle Decor

"The designer’s whimsical side is abundantly evident in his private works—a collection of almost 300 charming paper objects collected here for the first time.." ~Art Centron Newspaper

"The first look at his charming and deft paper sculptures that draw on everything from Picasso to animal skulls, 300 examples of which are included." ~Art & Auction

"...A 40-plus-year archive of paper sculptures by Irving Harper"
