Welcome to the new Paper and Page website.
Please keep visiting, new designs coming soon!
I remember seeing book art for the first time in a small gallery on a large hill in Lincolnshire, it was the work of Maggie Cullen and I was immediately intrigued by her unique sculptures. It opened up a whole world of incredible artists working with books and paper.
I love books so like many people I was initially unsure about folding them. But with so many left unloved or destroyed it’s wonderful to know that they can be treasured and bring new enjoyment as book art.
I began my own folding in 2012 after we decided on a book theme for our wedding. The subsequent hours spent patiently folding my own creations led to the beautiful book decorations that were the talking point of the wedding in March 2013.
I started with folding paperback books into basic shapes (you can easily give these a go yourself if you fancy getting creative!) and soon set about learning how to create more intricate designs. Although nowhere close to the stunning work of the inspirational artists listed below I hope that these books can bring lots of enjoyment.
All of the books are folded by hand, with no cutting of pages, all can be unfolded into their original state and most are made using the Odhams Companion Book Club range.
I’m currently working on more designs, including some one-off pieces so please check back regularly and feel free to contact me about any orders.
Su’s creations are truly magical. Her work served as inspiration for our stunning wedding cake by the wonderful Danni (https://en-gb.facebook.com/pages/Dannis-Cakes/106496346062007)
The characters created by Maggie Cullen grow from the book with inspiration taken from the content.
Cecilia Levy creates everyday items our of paper including paper teacups – my two favourite things combined into intricate art.
Justin Rowe makes magical book sculptures inspired from book illustrations.
I love the detail in Jill’s work, its some intricate and precise.
