Paperists is a book designed by Wu Yanting, Su Zhenhua, Huang Zhiyi, and Liu Xian that features a compilation of paper artist's fascinating pieces and interviews. Paper artists have the uncommon skill of taking what most people know as an everyday item and working, cutting, folding, and molding it to be a totally and utterly fascinating piece of artwork. The book itself is wonderfully designed, with an artfully gold foiled logo and a curated photographic spread on the cover. A keen eye for design curated this book and laid every page out for optimal viewing and inspiration.

Through folding, curving, cutting or gluing, a paper artist can create infinite artworks with a single sheet of paper, extending the medium’s potential far beyond its expected use as a platform for simple illustrative rendering.
