Paper Folding for Designers

Paul Jackson's book, Folding Techniques for Designers From Sheet to Form is pretty cool. This 224 page book is filled with step-by-step instructions and lots of photo's and illustrations demonstrating his techniques, plus it comes with a CD.
Dezeen has featured a few of his video's and is also holding a competition where you could win the book (closes August 9th). I enjoyed watching his crumpling paper video, you could make some nice lampshades with that one. And yes, there is an art to crumpling paper!  The book seems like a pretty good add to the ole library.

"Paul Jackson has been a professional paper folder and paper artist since 1982 and is the author of 30 books on paper arts and crafts. He has taught the techniques of folding on more than 150 university-level design courses in the UK, Germany, Belgium, the US, Canada and Israel. These include courses in Architecture, Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Textile Design, Jewellery, Product Design, Packaging, Ceramics, Industrial Design, Fine Art, Basic Design and Interior Design. He has also taught many workshops in museums, arts centres and festivals and has worked as 'folding consultant' for companies such as Nike and Siemens."
