Aptly named for the Japanese word for “fold,” Paperblanks’ Ori journal series promotes the art and everyday practice of paper folding in Japan. Featuring the work of artist Yuko Nishimura, the cover designs evoke simplicity and ingenuity.
Nishimura transforms simple sheets of paper into geometric, two-dimensional works of art that breathe harmony and rhythm. If you’re anything like us, her lyrical, folded lines and curves—and resulting patterns and shadows—will hypnotize you. When you’re ready to put your own talents to the test, you can tuck your work into the journals’ memento pouches for safekeeping.
