The Book of Paper

Oliver Helfrich, a German designer and book editor working and living in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, started a project called The Book Of… as a series of books to explore and elevate the aesthetic value of seemingly everyday materials such as paper. wood, glass and stone. The first book is focused on paper featuring some beautiful paper sculptures by Oliver Helfrich, photographed by Antje Peters, along with a series of essays by artists, architects and scientists, all of whom have unique approaches to paper – from adopting origami to fold space telescopes to creating earthquake-resistant cardboard architecture or using paper as a therapeutic tool.
The book will soon be available at Another Shop. Meanwhile visit ‘The Books Of’ for more information.
