Paper of the Week:
In the Studio:
Some moments are bittersweet. I finished collating all of the copies of my artist’s book Prism, so now I won’t be able to view all of the colors sitting out like this ever again. Watch my video about this book here. I’m so pleased that it is making its way out into the world, now in the special collections library at several institutions thanks to Vamp & Tramp Booksellers.
- I sent my monthly newsletter out on Thursday. Read it here (this is my blog).
- Did you catch Madeleine Durham talking about her unique painted papers on Paper Talk?
- I just updated my pinterest board featuring places to shop for paper. Please let me know if you see a shop that’s missing!
Watch paper artist and designer Peter Dahmen talk about how he created this holiday card for the Museum of Modern Art. I’m a huge fan of paper trees!
Join me in backing Matt Shlian’s latest project – it’s already fully funded, meaning everyone wants one of his books. You’ll get a monograph featuring his amazing work with paper. I talked with Matt recently and will be featuring him on Paper Talk in a few weeks.
Check this out! Awagami Factory in Tokushima, Japan has partnered with Moab Paper to offer Moenkopi Washi Bizan 300, a paper made from hemp and kozo fibers and coated for photography.
Luxury toilet paper? It’s pretty, but what do you think?
I enjoyed this article about Jacob Hashimoto’s new installation in a Chicago skyscraper. I saw his work last year in Dallas, and it was interesting to read how he comes up with the configuration of multiple pieces on the computer. In the end “the disks are strategically positioned to create the effect of a cloudlike, faceted mass. The kites appear to be undulating throughout the space by using varying lengths of string, and the graphics are printed on paper that is embedded into resin to create a stained glasslike disc that allows light to permeate.”
