The Record Book is another fabulous Hedi Kyle creation: a very cool book that is created out of pockets. Each folio is folded, cut, and scored, and then stacked in such a way as to create a book that can house any number of cool items: ephemera, photos, recipes, poems, flotsam and jetsam. The Masu progression is a favorite of mine—a simple origami structure that can be a box with a lid to house objects, can be flattened and attached to other boxes for a sculptural book, or sewn together to make sections for a book or a constructed surface! And last but not least, the Plunder book challenges us to create a “book” out of provided materials, adding only adhesive, thread, or small structural items. A super fun challenge—and a good way to explore book structures and techniques with challenging materials.
