Paper Master
Origami artist Eric Joisel dies at 53

Among the animals to inspire the French origami master, Eric Joisel, were dogs, such as the Greyhound pictured here. We were saddened to read of Joisel’s too-early death. Using only paper—no adhesive or scissors—Joisel modeled extremely detailed, animated figures of hedgehogs, seahorses, sprites, musicians and much more. You can almost imagine all those flat sheets of paper at his Argenteuil home sighing over the lost opportunity to come alive in his hands.
