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 is the reason that my mom wanted me to help out to personalize these books with each pattern. But my experience as a Print maker I don’t like this type of pattern since it can not ever be used again. I really prefer making patterns that can be used over and over again since the measurements are accurate to within a millimeter it’s essentially a template for a Print. Which gives me plenty of ideas for future patterns.
