Summary expansion
"Similar to 'Cutting paper' in format and approach, the book explores the art of folded paper, and presents a collection of samples on the pages and laid into the accompanying box. Brief essays discuss folding techniques, the process of creating illustrated pieces, and paper choices. Interspersed are over 150 tipped-in examples from pleating, education, computational geometry, toy making, origami and packaging (some examples are presented shown in progress, as well as finished pieces, in a variety of papers)"--Heavenly Monkey blog (www.heavenlymonkeybooks.blogspot.com)

David Clifford at Black Stone Press in Vancouver printed the text on Arches mouldmade."
  • Title page of the specimen book, a piece of folded paper art itself, was printed separately at Heavenly Monkey on a handpress. Essays are printed and specimens are displayed on leaves of heavy black and white papers, with deckle edges. The book is bound in red and black leather and black pastepaper boards, decorated with gilt rules and gilt geometric patterned rolled borders
  • The Chinese paper thread box, or "zhen xian bao," is a traditional paper container, folded origami-style into various compartments, typically used for storing thread, needles, paper patterns, or personal memorabilia. The "zhen xian bao," made of purple, green, orange and cream papers, is presented flat, folded in half; when opened, twelve small compartments appear, six on each side; the two sides can be lifted to form a large rectangular box. Housed in a portfolio of thick gray paper with deckle edges, and blind-stamped title "Zhen Xian Bao."
  • The case is black silk and red leather, with black pastepaper and red leather lid; affixed to upper surface of lid are red and gray pastepaper strips in a zig-zag folding pattern, gold-ruled black leather triangles, and a gold-stamped black leather title label. The floor of the case is divided into 11 compartments holding 13 three-dimensional folded paper shapes made of various white, colored, and marbled papers. Each of the shapes may be identified by consulting the "map" to the contents of the box found on last page of specimen book, which includes the name of the folding pattern and type of paper used for each shape
