Complete Pleats by Paul Jackson - Publisher's Giveaway

Congratulations to Zia Gipson and laura.e.j.taylor!

Features about Paul Jackson's paper technique books are always popular here at ATP... no surprise as he is a paper artist and educator with vast knowledge on the subject and more than thirty books to his credit. Paul's latest title, Complete Pleats, will be an enticing one to all with an interest in paper folding. To make things even more appealing, publisher Laurence King is offering an international giveaway!

Complete Pleats by Paul Jackson - Intl Giveaway through 10-16-15

Right off the bat, I should mention there is no need to be intimidated by the subtitle, Techniques for Fashion Architecture and Design. While this comprehensive book shows fascinating examples of worldly pleating, the instructions can be utilized by hobbyists and professionals alike.

Complete Pleats covers every aspect of paper pleating you can think of, and perhaps many that you never knew existed. Paul takes us far beyond mountain and valley folds.

 Complete Pleats - example from Paul Jackson's new book

Start at the beginning by dividing paper and progress to constructing accordion, knife, box, upright, non-parallel linear, curved, and cut pleats. Twisted and V-pleats, square grids, and pleats laid across pleats are detailed as well.

A thorough section on creating pleats in fabric teaches steaming, baking, twisting, stitching, and starching.

For those of you who have seen beautiful examples of intricate tessellations and been mystified, the book details how these complex folds are accomplished.

Step-by-step photographs and line drawings explain each method... the book includes 660 illustrations in its 304 pages, making it a more extensive pleating manual than Paul's 2011 title, Folding Techniques for Designers: From Sheet to Form. A DVD is included that features him demonstrating pleating techniques via 23 how-to segments.

  43. Hello! Thanks for the review, is very useful. I am studying product design and I don’t know if I should get this book or Folding Techniques for Designers, I was planning on getting both but maybe is too much if they have similar material, which one do you recommend me? I am interested in furniture design and also in using fabrics for my designs.
    Thank you in advance.
