Book folding is an arts and crafts technique where you measure, cut and fold the pages in a book to make an image that is based on a black and white silhouette. I was introduced to book folding by my mother. When she asked me if I thought I could create some silhouettes to create new patterns that people had asked her about but there were no patterns available that matched what they wanted. I’ve picked up a couple of programs that are used to create these patterns and these are the final results of some of the patterns I’ve created.

This pattern was a bit of an experiment. The person who wanted this pattern saw a similar one on another site and wanted one that was similar in style only folds no cuts. This was my first attempt to make a pattern that only used folds. I knew that due to only using folds it would be limited by how many pages the book had. Luckily this was a large book so I took a few liberties with details. It turned out fairly simple but everything that needed to be seen can be.
