Welcome to Arty Projects
Our mission is to "keep the child spirit alive."
Paper-sculpture and paper-engineered books create a magical space for discovery. Pop-up and moveable books are their own art form traceable to the Medieval world and paper folding and printing to ancient China.
With informational books now digitized, the joy of looking and feeling the paper book in a reader's hands, has become most valuable.
Illusions made combining paper, illustration, photography and paper design create a lovely human experience through an art form involving hand-assembly.
Each of these books and products are made primarily by women, world-wide. They produce exquisite products with great care.
Arty Projects is an award winning moveable book packaging studio. Sally Blakemore, owner and creative director, was nominated by the Moveable Book Society for a 2010 Meggendorfer Prize , a paper-engineering award for NASCAR Pop-up Guide to the Sport
