The Art of Cutting by Jean-Charles Trebbi
According to urban architect, designer, artist, author, and multi-faceted creator Jean-Charles Trebbi, the art of cutting can be summarized in one sentence by Italian artist Bruno Munari: "Preserving our inner child all of one's life means maintaining the curiosity to learn, the pleasure of understanding, the desire to communicate."
Trebbi explores these philosophies in The Art of Cutting, which details numerous approaches to folding, cutting, and assembly. Filled with beautiful, full-color photos and statements from a diverse collection of established artists, The Art of Cutting examines how new forms of artistic expression are made possible with modern materials and cutting-edge technology. The book contains sections on cutting, art and decoration, furniture and architecture, and cut-out models. Paperback, 160 pages.
