Folding Techniques for Designers

Here's some more information from Laurence King:


Folding Techniques for Designers From Sheet to Form by Paul Jackson

Folding Techniques for Designers by Paul Jackson and published by Laurence King in May 2011 is an elegant, practical handbook, covering more than 70 folding techniques explained through clear step-by- step drawings, crease-pattern drawings and specially commissioned photography.

Folding Techniques for Designers

All designers fold, that is, all designers crease, pleat, bend, hem, gather, knot, hinge, corrugate, drape, twist, furl, crumple, collapse, wrinkle, facet, curve or wrap two-dimensional sheets of material, and through these processes of folding, create three-dimensional objects.

Folding Techniques for Designers

Despite being so ubiquitous, folding as a design topic is rarely studied, however in recent years more and more designers of all disciplines have turned to folding to create a wide range of handmade and manufactured objects, both functional and decorative.

Folding Techniques for Designers

Folding Techniques for Designers is the first book to present this essential topic specifically for designers.

Folding Techniques for Designers

Drawing on 30 years of experience, the author aims to establish folding as a primary design tool and, by doing so, to reintroduce it as an essential topic in design education and practice.
