Is it just me, or have you been noticing more paper illustrations in print? Eiko Ojala designed this cover for last February’s New Yorker Magazine’s anniversary issue. Nice work!

Watch Charles Clary make one of his paper excavations. Wow!

I just discovered this artist team, Hari & Deepti, and they live in Colorado! They even have a show opening next week in Denver. I hope to get down there to see it!

About The Sunday Paper: They keep saying that paper will become obsolete, yet artists, craftspeople, designers and creatives are keeping it alive and well. A healthy number of people are even making paper by hand (in some cultures they are still using age-old traditions). How cool is that? The Sunday PAPER is a resource for ideas and inspiration, all having to do with this amazing material. Each Sunday, starting with this edition, I’ll bring you stories and examples of people doing exciting, innovative, and beautiful things with paper, as well as links to interesting paperfacts I’ve unearthed from around the globe. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this paper, Papier, papel, хартия, Papir,紙, Papper, פּאַפּיר… and don’t hesitate to click on the link to leave your comments and suggestions!
