Item description for How to Fold (Agile Rabbit Editions) by Pepin Press...
Packaging is an important factor in any retail environment and a key element in most marketing strategies. Consumers react immediately to package shapes, and are influenced by them when making buying decisions. Different product categories are often easy to recognize by their characteristic form, for example chocolate boxes or milk cartons. On the other hand, a manufacturer of an exclusive product, such as jewellery or perfume, may deliberately choose an unusual, eye-catching form. How to Fold and Folding Patterns for Display and Publicity are unique step-by-step manuals, containing hundreds of great folding ideas and ready-to-use designs. These books are essential tools for anyone involved in the fields of graphic and industrial design, advertising, and printing. All patterns are stored in eps vector format on the enclosed CD-ROMs. They may be used freely to create new designs, and can be scaled and modified to suit any conceivable purpose.

Very good! Oct 26, 2007
Sets of ten of tips for packings with the projects of cut and assembly! Good and very practical. I recommend.
Don't expect original ideas for folders. Apr 10, 2007
It is quite a good compilation of solutions that you can use to refresh your mind when creating something new in fact. And it can also be helpful when you don't want to spend much time creating something to your client.
Nothing ground breaking... Jan 4, 2007
I teach College and it is handy to get students outside of the letter sized frame of mind. But for a seasoned professional it isn't that jazzy. The box/container book in this series is really good.
Not very useful Nov 5, 2006
I purchased this book because I understood from the description that it would be helpful in various kinds of folds, including boxes. The book is primarily a 2 dimensional folding exercise for pretty simple items. I returned it.
LOTS of folds, no text Sep 3, 2006
That pretty much sums it up. The book does have some care put into it. Just not as much as I was hoping for.
It is designed to be universal. The short introduction is in several languages, the rest of the book is diagrams.
I would have liked more information about logical uses for some of these folds. Some seem a bit excessive and almost inpractical. However, many of the folds in the book are quite nice.
The way the book is setup, the folds are each on a spread. Left page the full sheet view to the right page of a final piece - all the steps inbetween across the spread.
My only wish is that there was some small text helping to explain some of the folds. Also, maybe a photograph of a fold in a real world use.
IF you use your imagination, you can put this book to GREAT use. If you need your hand held for everything, this is not the book for you.
