The Sunday Paper #36

Happy New Year! Here’s to a great year for all of us.

In the Studio: I’m hard at work creating a new artists’ book. Interluceo will pass through many hands. I am creating the watermarked cotton papers plus abaca sheets in seven colors; Beatrice Coron will provide seven fabulous papercut illustrations; below you see Tom Leech on the letterpress – I was in Santa Fe this past week where we proofed the ink on my cotton paper; and Claudia Cohen will bind the edition. 25 copies are being prepared to make a debut at the Codex Book Fair next month.

After meeting Jie Qi at a Movable Book Society conference, I featured her paper electronics in Playing With Pop-Ups.

Here’s a great video of Jie’s work as a tinkerer (love that word) at the Exploratorium (love that place too) in San Francisco.

You know that I love this new invention that fuses paper and light! Rohinni has developed a super thin Lightpaper which provides a way of printing light on any surface. How cool is that? I’ll be on the lookout for the commercial and industrial applications that come out of this.

Here’s a great old window display at Printed Matter in NYC (Lucy Lippard used to curate monthly window displays there). I lived right around the corner from this fantastic bookstore back in the day (1987) when I had my first sublet for a summer before leaving the city for Brooklyn.

I’m not in-the-know when it comes to cars, but the McClaren P1 can catch a pretty penny. Here’s a tutorial for making a paper version, which will cost you only a fraction of the price.

About The Sunday Paper: The Sunday Paper is published by Helen Hiebert Studio. 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!
