(Heavenly Monkey)

Folding Paper: Technique, Design, Obsession.

Cohen, Claudia (illus.)

(Vancouver): Heavenly Monkey Editions, 2017. Quarto. 81pp. From an edition of thirty-six, this is one of six contributor's copies signed by the two authors. Binder Claudia Cohen and book designer Barbara Hodgson present yet another stunning colaboration on paper. Following in the pattern of Decorating Paper and Cutting Paper, Folding Paper features brief essays on the history and technique of the art of folding paper as well as some 150 hand-folded, tipped-in example pieces from education, toymaking, computational geometry, pleating, origami, and packaging. Designed and set in Monotype Fournier by Hodgson, and printed on 200g Arches Wove by David Clifford at Black Stone Press. The folded title page was printed on the Heavenly Monkey handpress. In a departure from the rest of the edition, this copy has been bound in heavy crimson paper with a black leather lettering piece on the upper cover. It also lacks the box containing additional three-dimensional pieces. As expected from Cohen, Hodgson, and Heavenly Monkey, a meticulously crafted masterpiece. Imperceptible sunning to spine, else fine. Item #30453

Price: $5,500.00
