The Sunday Paper #120, August 14, 2016
I LOVE learning something new every day! Now this is not paper, but Kevin Parry over at Laika (remember the animated film Coraline?) had the ingenious idea to use cinefoil (a malleable aluminum material used by photographers to black out light) for stop-motion origami in the new film Kubo and the Two Strings. You can’t tell at all that Parry covered the cinefoil with paper towels and painted it. Be sure to scroll down at the link to watch the origami come to life!

It’s coming! The Twelve Months of Paper Calendar Kickstarter Campaign (wow, that’s a mouthful) will launch later this week! Read all about it here next Sunday! Here’s a quick snapshot of the projects we’ll be making throughout the twelve months of paper (in case you count, there are really 13 projects – December 2016 is a bonus month)!
This is a clever video about the history of coffee and how Mr. Folger sped up production and made it a household brand.
“Confluence: 12 Collaborations,” just opened at the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland and pays tribute to our relationship with paper in the past and the possibilities between new artists and disciplines in the future. Director Tom Balbo chose 12 papermakers and asked them to collaborate with their choice of artist. The show runs through September 16th.
