love the structure!

would love to examine the structure. from the image cant see how it's put together. this looks like it would be doable with my students when we do recycled papers. where can I find more info? is there a book or website?

the joins are just marvelous. it has architecture.

Velma said...

ronnie, yes!
brenda, it's not at all good for recycled paper, better long fibered handmade sheets (which is what you see here), and it's a hard structure!
jude, it DOES have architecture, and the joins are sewn!!!
