In China, paper plays an important role in the rituals of the death of loved ones. Things that the deceased need for a good life in the hereafter are burnt in the form of replicas of paper, taking the path into the world of the dead. The exhibition shows the current practice of this over a thousand years old ritual and presents paper sacrifices.

WATER STONE  PAPER                  

Kathrin Biffi-Frey,(Switzerland), Bara Lehmann-Schulz (Germany)
Kerber Verlag, Contemporary Art
ISBN:         978-3-7356-0133-9

28,00 Euro  (34,80 CHF)

The IAPMA menbers Bara Lehmann-Schulz and Kathrin Biffi-Frey have been using Paper for many years, to express and shape objects, images and installations. In 2005 – 2013 they created temporary installations in the Maggia river bed, in Swiss Tessin, using Paper and a few aids. This experimental work within a landscape shaped by glacial erosion used paper, light, and the weather, as well as standing and flowing water, and has characterised this project. It is these simultaneously transient and eternal, soft and hard, static and moving elements that make their work so fascinating.

The book is available via book stores or from the authors (according to prior agreement)

Bridge made from Paper

May 26, 2015 • 08:35 UTC

Of Interest

No glue. No cables. No steel reinforcements. The only thing keeping this bridge intact is, well, physics.
If you happened to be strolling across the Grisedale Valley—a ridiculously picturesque piece of land in Cumbria—over the past two weeks, you probably saw what looks like something out of a Monument Valley fever dream. A blindingly bright red bridge spanning a thin creek, made of nothing except thousands of sheets of paper. About 22,000 sheets, according to The Chronicle.
It’s called PaperBridge, and it’s the work of a UK artist named Steve Messam, who was commissioned by the area’s culture council to install it this spring.

Helen Hiebert is please to announce the publication of her new book, Playing with Paper. Autographed copies are available from Helen: or you can purchase a copy wherever fine books are sold.

The versatility of paper rivals that of any medium: it can be torn into pieces or burned with a match, yet it has the integrity to grace graphic design, fashion, and even architecture. In Playing with Paper, well-known paper maker and artist Helen Hiebert has assembled a delightful and exciting collection of paper techniques, and projects, including a gallery of work from leading paper artists that expands on the ideas explored in the book. The techniques featured range from pop-ups, model making, and paper cutting, to book arts, origami, folding, and pleating. There are even a few projects that involve flying paper.

Limp bindings from Tallinn

May 02, 2014 • 11:19 UTC


The Tallinn City Archives have a voluminous collection of limp bindings in long-stitch, chain-stitch and tacketing. This technique was used mainly when binding simple bands for daily use, such as registers, accounts and notes but has also occurred in more important works. In the book, "Limp Bindings from Tallinn", eight of the bands are presented together with thorough technical descriptions. Hopefully, you will be inspired to develop new variations.
The book, in offset print, is printed in 600 copies on Multidesign Original white 150-gram paper and has a protective cover in Curious Touch, 250 grams. The design of the 48-page book is inspired by medieval writings and is illustrated by artist Jordi Arkö.
The book can be ordered by my mail I will then give instruction how to pay via PayPal.
The price of the book is $ 50 including postage, any import fees will be paid by the customer.
