Hiromi Paper International, Inc. History of Washi Papermaking was introduced to Japan over 1,300 years ago. The Chronicles of Japan, Nihon Shoki, written in the year 720, state that the Chinese methods of making ink and paper were introduced to Japan by the Korean Buddhist priest, Doncho, in 610. The Prince Regent Shotoku found the Chinese style paper too fragile and encouraged the use of kozo (mulberry) and hemp fibers, which were already cultivated for use in making textiles. The techniques of making paper spread throughout the country and under his patronage, the original process slowly evolved into the nagashizuki method of making paper using kozo and neri (a viscous formation aid.)

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time.

Paper Animals By Anna-Wili Highfield « Made In Slant By Eyeswoon, on June 26th, 2012 Wolf, 2012, 70cm x 40cm x 40cm Sydney based artist Anna-Wili Highfield creates sculptures of animals from paper and copper pipe. Taking hand-painted cotton paper, the artist cuts and sews pieces together and then drapes them on copper wire. The strong dramatic quality that these animals present may come from Highfield’s background as a scenic artist in Opera Australia. For more horse sculptures constructed from paper, see the work of Richard Sweeney and Xavier Barrade.

Fictional Landscapes Colossal has seen its fair share of commendable book and paper work the last few weeks, but this was too good to pass up. UK-based artist Kyle Kirkpatrick constructs these wonderfully tiny dioramas using the topographies of carved books. Via the artist: My practice is primarily concerned with the notion of the imagined landscape. I present man-made objects and natural materials simultaneously to form carefully and meticulously composed installation works. I capitalize on intrigue taking objects out of context reinventing their use, pushing the viewer to see beyond what I present before them, a glass could be interpreted as a lake or a metal bracket a cliff.

The Creative License I am an author and creative director dividing my time between Los Angeles and New York. I am working on several projects with publishers and with clients while speaking at conferences and organizations here and in Europe. Before setting up this new bi-coastal life, I was Managing Director and Executive Creative Director of mcgarrybowen in New York. I helped build the agency, from its humble origins as a couple of dozen people sitting in a room looking at the phone and waiting for it to ring — to the global behemoth (1,000+ people, offices on three continents) it is today. We were named Ad Agency of the Year (twice by Ad Age and once by Ad Week which is apparently more picky) and I am proud to share in the credit for that.
