Lark  papercrafts: Our adoration goes way back. A browse through the Lark archives traces our passion for paper to 1992 and the publication of a no-frills how-to title called Papermaking for Basketry and Other Crafts. We’ve been pushing paper as a creative medium ever since through a wide variety of titles that testify to the material’s broad appeal:  Kirigami MenagerieCreative Cardboard, Paper Blooms, Quick and Easy Paper Crafts, the list goes on.

Our latest paper-related release shows just how far the medium has come in the past two decades. 500 Paper Objects: New Directions in Paper Art is the ultimate tribute to the material, a breathtaking overview of creative work in paper from an international group of artists. Taking the medium in unexpected directions, they’ve designed cutting-edge brooches, delicate dresses, sophisticated sculptures, complex installations, and more. Check out the images below, and you’ll see why—whether folded, woven, or cut, cast, stitched, or painted—paper is proving to be the medium of the moment.

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately,
    yet I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    just right content material as you probably did, the net
    can be much more useful than ever before.

    Definitely imagine that which you stated. Your favorite
    reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to
    remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider issues that they
    plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top and outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other
    folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thank you
