Cut and Fold Paper Textures: Techniques for Surface Design by Paul Jackson - Book Giveaway

Congratulations to Anna Harris, @brandideziel and @lisajaystudio, winners of the giveaway!

Paul Jackson is a paper artist, teacher of university-level design courses, and the author of more than thirty popular paper art and craft books. His newest title, Cut and Fold Paper Textures: Techniques for Surface Design, features a dozen techniques that are quite easy to master - no origami or paper engineering skills are required.

Cut and Fold Paper Textures

This paperback book contains 128 pages, 254 illustrations, and is a pleasure to thumb through... there are many inspiring examples of each technique.

Cut and Fold Paper Textures - Introduction Pages

You'll learn about twisted paper string, weaving, layering, coiling, tearing, bending, incising and lifting, crumpling, pleating, cutting pleats, stippling, and translucent surfaces.

Cut and Fold Paper Textures - Sample Pages

Samples of each topic are provided in white paper, as well as papers of different colors, weights, and textures. You are shown examples by art students and professional designers who use the techniques to make clothing, furniture, jewelry, artwork and homewares.
