Paper has long been a source of inspiration for artists and designers around the world, from classic Mexican papel picado to the art of origami which originated in Japan in the 17th century AD to the much-practiced kindergarten craft project of the pop-up greeting card, which has recently been turned into a fine art by respected contemporary artists such as Robert Sabuda and Nikki McClure.

Paper Works is a thorough visual exploration of the multitude of ways in which paper can be transformed and sculpted into abstract or realistic designs. The beauty of the medium partly lies in its delicacy, with fine intricate cutwork created by every method from laser cuts to X-acto knives.

This title features everything from sculptural carved book arts and installation art spanning entire rooms to stunning avant-garde paper couture fashion and beautiful all-white animal masks reminiscent of classic Carnival attire. Artists include Jen Stark, Veasyble, and Paula Arntzen.
