Dear all, Almost 2 years ago David Gachepapier asked me to make diagrams for his book and I agreed as it was quite a challenge to see if my diagrams can work also for his models (which are totally different from my own). Last week we finally released the result of that rather unexpected collaboration. I am happy to announce that our new book "Shaping Paper: Breathing Life into Origami" is now available on Amazon. We were already quite noisy about it on social media, I apologize if you get to see it again here.
The book introduces the techniques used by David to give his models the final push which turns his origami into objects. Ten folding projects which are diagrammed show how to shape paper as much as how to fold it; these projects are not complex but will require some practice! “Shaping Paper“ also features many pictures of David‘s models, both to illustrate the techniques which are taught and to take the reader on a little tour. We would like to thank here all the people who helped us succesfully finish this project! Special thanks go to Polly Verity for a wonderful Foreword, Louise Flax for thorough proofreading of all texts, Steve, Czvetzelina, Anicé, Jino, Jamie, Amandine, Elisabeth, Tine, Seb, David, Alizee for very essential testfolding! Happy shaping! :) Dasa Severova _____________________________________ Book is available now in several Amazon shops: USA https://www.amazon.com/dp/1709524006/ Canada https://www.amazon.ca/dp/1709524006 Germany https://www.amazon.de/dp/1709524006 UK https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1709524006 France https://www.amazon.fr/dp/1709524006/ Italy https://www.amazon.it/dp/1709524006 Spain https://www.amazon.es/dp/1709524006 Japan https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/1709524006 For those who don‘t like Amazon, the book will be soon available also in the Origami Shop, it's possible to preorder it already here https://www.origami-shop.com/shaping-paper-precommande-xml-206_2649_641_517_247-11691.html .
