Owen Gildersleeve: Paper Cut
Owen Gildersleeve has just released his first book, an exploration of the contemporary world of papercraft art and illustration called Paper Cut. The 192 pages come to life with the works and words of pioneering papercraft artists from around the world.
From Owen: “Through in-depth interviews and rarely published behind-the-scenes imagery, Paper Cut delves into the working lives of twenty-five of the world’s leading papercraft artists, giving a unique perspective into this burgeoning field of illustration. For this book I was lucky enough to have control over all the aspects, including the artist selection, interviews and cover artwork. The design was created in collaboration with Chris Clarke, and the text was proof-read and edited by Nick Redgrove. I also created a bespoke hand-cut typeface which was used for all of the artist’s titles.”
