During my visit to the International School of the Peninsula last week, the kids and I made my folded book, Pizza Pie. This is one of my favorite miniature haiku books and it is easy enough for kids to make, but is still fun for grownups. Caution. It may make you hungry. I’m currently rethinking my dinner plans.
The structure is a single sheet book meaning that it begins as a single sheet of paper and with a few folds and a cut, it becomes a book.
If you’d like to make your own copy, you can find it at Free For All, an online exhibition of artists’ books for you to download and assemble yourself. All of the books are free. Other contributing artists include Pati Bristow, Warren Craghead III, Marti Haykin, Adele Henderson, Robert Hirsch, Judith Hoffman, and Mark Snyder. Mark Snyder has also posted an excellent set of instructions for How to Make an Eight Page Book Out of a Single Sheet of Paper.
