Folding Paper: Technique, Design, Obsession.

Cohen, Claudia (illus.)

(Vancouver): HM Editions, 2017. Quarto. 81pp. From an edition of thirty-six, this is one of thirty numbered 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. The box contains an additional three-dimensional pieces, including a Chinese magical thread box, Zhen Xian Bao. 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. Bound by Claudia Cohen in gray paper with black leather spine and red leather edge and onlays. A square of red leather is set on point on the front cover, and gilt-ruled to look like an unfolded sheet of origami. Further gilt ruling and tooling graces the spine and edges. Set into a matching box. Strips of red and light gray paper zig-zag across the box, arranged to look like a strip of paper folding on itself. Prospectus laid-in. As expected from Cohen, Hodgson, and Heavenly Monkey, a meticulously crafted masterpiece. Mint. Item #30589
