Great book – a must for anyone interested in sheet materials

The book I’m referring to is Paul Jackson’s “Folding Techniques for Designers from Sheet to Form”.   It was first published in 2011 and there were two print runs in 2012 because it must have become a recommended book on several design courses.  Clear instructions and diagrams, with helpful photographs showing  the ‘end result’ of each example, led both Jill and me to pick up paper and start folding.  It was so satisfying folding paper and not starting with a thin small square of origami paper: Instead. we made “structures”!  Here are some of the results from a couple of days folding – and we’re just half way through the book.

These are all paper but one could use other materials and, of course, coat the paper after folding, say with slip or resin, and make a rigid folded structure…..
