November Workshop: Blizzard Books

Structures by Dolores Guffey

Blizzard Books with Dolores Guffey: 

In this workshop we will play with variations of the Hedi Kyle "Blizzard Book" structure. The "Blizzard Book" is so named because one day Hedi couldn't get to work due to a blizzard and used that time to play with paper by doing experimental folds. This is that structure, and hence its name. The beauty of this structure is its versatility; it can be used as a spine, a hidden surprise fold, a book on its own, or a series of pockets in which content can be arranged, removed, or replaced at will. No sewing is involved – this book is made by creative folding of a single sheet of paper. We will make at least 4 variations, each one a prototype.
