Sok Song, the author and origami artist behind Origami Chic: A Guide to Foldable Fashion, appeared at Books of Wonder in New York City this past weekend for a special event and book signing. Sok was joined by other talented creators of interactive paper and pop-up books including Matthew Reinhart, Yevgeniya Yeretskaya, Lotta Nieminen, Chuck Fischer, and Courtney Watson McCarthy, who each showcased their latest book creations.
The creators participated in a panel discussion during which they discussed their work processes, their paths to publishing, and their techniques.
Sok had wanted to do an event at this bookstore since he first walked into it 15 years ago. On Saturday, his dream came true! Sok was able to share his passion for paper folding with artists young and old, and it ended up being a fun and successful event. Check out some photos from the event, and be sure to visit Sok's Origami Chic website for tips on how to create your own foldable fashion!
