Flabacadabra!

The Sunday Paper #279 September 29, 2019

Paper of the Week: This post got lots of attention over on facebook this week. I made this whispy thin and lusciously translucent flabaca (flax/abaca blend).

Peter Dahmen

Peter Dahmen is an artist and designer based in Dortmund, Germany. I discovered Peter’s work on the internet, which is how he has become well known in the field of pop-ups, and has connected with clients around the world. We talk about the first pop-up book he saw in a bookstore as a child, how that interest was rekindled about 10 years later when he was studying communication design at the university, and how he became a youtube sensation 20 years later! Peter describes some really interesting projects he’s been involved in – from designing a pop-up wall for a car manufacturer to creating a pop-up book for a magician – along with the challenges and breakthroughs that he’s made with new paper and new technologies.
