Introduction: Folded Book Art
Create various shapes or letters using old books.
Step 1: Get a Book
Any book will work, but a hardcover will stand up better.
Step 2: Pages
Bend the pages so it doubles in size
Step 3: Drawing
While the pages are bent over, draw your design (Solid shapes work best, or a "bubbled" letter).
Step 4: Is This Right?
When the book is laying flat the design will seem warped, but don't worry, it'll look right when finished
Step 5: Folding
Starting from the back of the book, begin folding pages at the mark.
Step 6: Consistency
Make sure to keep the folds consistent so when it is done, it will be a smooth transition
Step 7: Keep Folding
Until done... enjoy
Step 8: TIP: Multiple Marks
If you have a design where there are multiple marks on one edge, you fold on alternating pages and repeat the pattern. (see picture)
We have a be nice policy.
