I had a wonderful time at the Codex Book Fair. Thanks to all of you who stopped by my table and said hello. The event is truly magical and overwhelming. I hardly had a chance to step away from my booth to look at the amazing work, catch up with friends, or take photos. My goal was to sell a few artist’s books and to get more copies of The Art of Papercraft out into the world – mission accomplished :).

I’m featuring one-sheet wonders here on the blog, since the projects in my new book, The Art of Papercraft, fall into that category. I’d love to feature your one-sheet wonders!

I’m creating a series of informational videos about the book. This Wrist Cuff features kraft text, a really unique paper, and is one of a growing series of videos featuring the projects in the book.

Out of the Studio:

Inspiration at my feet! This tile was in the lobby of the Bancroft Hotel in Berkeley, where I stayed this past week. Since my initials are HH, this really caught my eye. I just might have to try making a watermark featuring this pattern…
