Coincidentally, I gave myself a paper cut today. Ouch!

November 20th, 2007

I was just going to post about these ace paper garlands and decorative hanging thingies from RE-found objects, but then procrastination took hold and I was all over the internets looking at paper things.

I could never talk about paper art without mentioning Peter Callesen first and foremost. His work is amazing and magical and incredible and beautiful. I love it.

Tord Boontje does brilliant things with paper (and other materials, I cheated a bit here!). His book is definitely on my christmas list.

And I found an artist I hadn’t seen before, Chris Natrop. I really like the shadows his cutouts make:

There is also Rob Ryan but I posted about him already :)
And last but not least, some cute zig zag city cards from Muji:
