Rag & Pulp by Uppercase
Turn the page to a world of creative expression with Rag & Pulp. This visually stunning book takes you on a journey into the diverse world of contemporary paper arts through stories, interviews, and images that bring handmade paper to life.
For artists, crafters, designers and writers, paper is integral to everything we make—it serves as the foundation of our ideas. It's the substrate upon which our thoughts and talents are made visible. But paper is also a means of expression in itself: unique papers are made by hand with innovative and natural materials, artistic techniques like marbling paint its surface, manipulation creates texture and sculptural forms, and through manual and mechanical processes, designers create decorative papers that bring pattern to our daily lives.
Through beautiful imagery and inspiring stories and interviews, Rag & Pulp explores the diversity of contemporary papermakers, manufacturers and artists, all of whom use and elevate paper from a blank white sheet into something uniquely marvellous and expressive.
448 pages, 42 profiles of people, companies and products amply illustrated through photographs of the artist or company's creative process, details of equipment and techniques, studios and workspaces, and photographs of finished products.
