“Pressed, Stained, Slashed, Folded” was the name of the MoMA exhibit this past March that focused on works made with paper as the main ingredient. As someone who loves not only works on paper, but works that showcase its abilities as a material, I was extremely disappointed. As the title indicates, it seems they could think of only four things to do with paper. Luckily, Gestalten has come to the rescue with Papercraft, a big, beautiful book showcasing not only cute, small things, like the little paper fruits and vegetables on the cover, but also great big complicated works of paper, even animation.
As a follow up, Gestalten is releasing a series paper model kits from London-based design studio, PostlerFerguson. The Uzi, MP5, M4A8 and hand grenade are due out soon.
