I used to have pen pals with whom I exchanged letters. I had a pen pal from Greece, another one from Finland, and I think I even got a letter once from Japan. Wherever the correspondence traveled, my paper delivered the message impeccably. I was very proud of my collection, and my mom was even happier to see her gifts being put to good use.
After my communication with my foreign friends ended, I used most of that paper to make little origami figures. I still have a few of my early models as reminders of a simpler life, when all I needed was a piece of paper to travel around the world or invent a magnificent little creature. I truly respect and adore the art of paper, and here I give you some beautiful examples.... for the Love of paper.
