I Love Paper by Fideli Sundqvist, photography by Maria Wretblad, pub. Quarry Books, 2015
This is a book about paper art---paper cutting and paper folding, paper cake and paper circuses, paper to decorate with and paper to wear. The projects are charming. Some of the explanations are idiosyncratically translated but a little thought will make it clear what needs to be done.
Unfortunately the book does not stay open very well. I tried bending its spine and that helped a little, but the center pages still want to close. You'll have to use clips or a book weight if you want to reference a certain page while working.
The photography is fetching---well styled and artfully done. See samples in the slide show below.
Sundqvist tells a little about her education and creative process. She also gives valuable tips for tools and object creation. I'm looking forward to making some of the geometric figures and maybe an apple or two!
