Paper as Structure | I am fascinated with pager as a building material. The following is a list of books and other resources that I have found useful in my experiments.


Paul Jackson has a series of great books about folding and using paper.  I find them all interesting in their own way. My favorite thing about his books is that they teach fundamental principles and encourage experimentation.
