Paper Sculpture - Signed by author

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

By following the instructions in this book flat sheets of paper can be transformed into fascinating three-dimensional sculptures. Succeeding sections of this book show the simplest way of 'raising' a form from flat sheet to a sophisticated structure. No special equipment is necessary: just a simple working surface and a few tools such as can be found in any home. The problems connected with making paper sculptures in the round are explained, as are the best ways of solving these problems. The most effective means of using colour are also indicated. Particular attention is given to the historical background and origin of a craft which, starting as a classroom exercise connected with a progressive teaching of art students earlier in this century, has now developed into a delightful art form in its own right. George Borchard is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of the Costume Society. He works as both a freelance designer and as a teacher. This book contains 96 pages, 93 black and white photographs, 10 line drawings and five colour plates. it is signed by the author on the inside title page. Published in 1973 the hardback book is in a fair condition with minor creases, scratches and tears to the dust jacket and minor creases to the corners and edges of the spine of the hardback cover from where it has been stored. There is some minor creaming to the edges of the pages and some small marks on some of the pages but otherwise the pages and binding is in good condition.
