A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|Figuras de Papel|
de Papel' is a series of 3 booklets published by B Bauza
in Barcelona in 1932. Each of the booklets has 12 pages.
I have not seen the booklets themselves. The information
on this page has been kindly provided by Juan Gimeno.
There is an obvious connection between these booklets and the Image a Pliers booklets published in France in the same year, but it is not clear precisely what the connection is or in which direction it runs.
