Product Description

Synopsis

"Paper Engineering" explores graphic design that extends beyond 2D. From the simplest fold in a letterhead to the structural intricacies of a pop-up book, the construction of 3D paper objects requires as much input as the surface decoration. This stylish and inspirational book unfolds the conceptual complexities of paper engineering, studying the techniques of eminent designers in Europe, Japan and the USA. Case studies are illustrated with photographs of finished work, as well as detailed diagrams and commentary. "Paper Engineering" also explores the functions of paper architecture in graphic design, ranging from pop-up books, invitations and point-of-sale to packaging.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully inspirational book for anyone interested in working with paper. Lots of 2D and 3D examples are given, and a couple of great interviews with masters of this craft enhance the enjoyment. 99% of the time I work with paper in a one-dimensional way but this book has really opened my eyes to the almost limitless possibilities of enhancing a design piece in a very interesting and visually satisfying way. This is probably the best £20 I've spent in my working life.

I GOT THIS FOR CHRISTMAS AND LOVE IT!
IT'S BEAUTIFULLY LAYED OUT, WITH UP TO DATE CONTEMPORY IMAGES TO REALLY INSPIRE.
AS A GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDENT, THIS BOOK WILL CERTAINLY GIVE ME A HEAD START OVER MY FELLOW STUDENTS. I'VE JUST FINISHED A PARKOUR BROCHURE PROJECT, I COULD REALLY HAVE USED THIS BOOK TO GIVE ME SOME IDEAS. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MY NEXT BRIEF!!

Food for graphic designers 26 Dec 2007
By L. L. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a cookbook. Yes, it has a couple of templates in the back, but it's designed for creative pros, not crafters. It examines how some of the smartest firms in the business break the ho-hum barrier for client pieces by merging print and clever folds. It shows deft creases that allow brochures to unfurl with added meaning, it presents illustrations of origami wielded for striking effect, and displays (sorry, photos only) playful pop-up confections that add 3D punch to books and other gotta-have products. `

Each sizzling example is accompanied by the firm, the client, and the application. If this book doesn't inspire you to grab your scissors and a handful of paper, you may not be having enough fun.

Did not meet standards 18 Dec 2008
By Elizabeth O. Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When buying on line it's a guess at what you are buying. This is a good book but not what I was looking for and now I can not return it for a full refund.
