Recently I stumbled over a very interesting publisher. Actually they stumbled over me and now suddenly somehow I am spending my days in Freising where I am involved in a fantastic book project.
VIERECK VERLAG is a very small publisher. Their topic is origami and origami art. They are selling origami books from all over the world especially from Japan, as well as origami paper and everything you need to make beautiful origami artworks. Now they are about to publish their very own first book in Summer.
Origami. A whole new world to me. There is a REAL world behind one would never expect. Beyond the well known paper-ships and paper-cranes and all I didn't know that there exists something like paper-art and even industrial origami. Did you know that some origami artists develop techniques such as for space travel to fold solar sails?! Or that BMW is very much connected to industrial origami in terms of developing shapes for their new cars?
Anyways, I was asked to work with them on the first book of the VIERECK VERLAG:
SPIRAL |Origami | Art | Design
from Tomoko Fuse, a very well known Origami Artist from Japan. Nearly 400 pages of beautiful pictures by Herbert Bungartz and Spiral-Origami of Tomoko Fuse published by Paulo Mulatinho and Silke Schröder.
Thank you for letting me be part of this spectacular project.
