We've been quoted in a newly released wedding book! Catherine Sabino called us when researching invitation options for her new book Stylish Weddings for Less: How to Plan Your Dream Wedding on a Budget and an early release copy arrived last week with quotes from both Erin and myself!!! It's available on Amazon beginning on December 1st. Thanks Catherine for including us!
We were excited to read New York's Museum of Arts and Design will host Slash: Paper Under the Knife beginning on October 7th. This exhibit, created mostly from artists commissioned to create a piece for specifically for MAD will showcase art made from paper to the extreme. From the MAD website...
"Slash: Paper Under the Knife takes the pulse of the international art world's renewed interest in paper as a creative medium and source of artistic inspiration, examining the remarkably diverse use of paper in a range of art forms. Slash is the third exhibition in MAD's Materials and Process series, which examines the renaissance of traditional handcraft materials and techniques in contemporary art and design. The exhibition surveys unusual paper treatments, including works that are burned, torn, cut by lasers, and shredded. A section of the exhibition will focus on artists who modify books to transform them into sculpture, while another will highlight the use of cut paper for film and video animations."
Scheduled to come out in September, I am desperately awaiting the arrival of Papercraft, a new book from Gelstalten.
The book explores the astounding possibilities of paper and gathers the most extraordinary creations – from small objects and figures to large-scale art installations and urban interventions. It also includes a DVD with fun DIY printable templates for creating your own paper characters and toys.
Doesn't it look amazing?
