About the Author

About Adeline Klam

With no more than a square of paper, a touch of glue or a thread of string, there appears under her fingers, as if by magic, fold after fold of surprise and wonder. This is the work of Adeline Klam.

Trained at the Duperré school in Textile Arts and Printing, Adeline has always loved the interplay of pattern and colour. But her passion for paper really began when she discovered Japanese paper or washi. Travelling to traditional paper factories in Japan, she was inspired by the beauty of these original designs; over time she learned to master this material and now runs a workshop where she exhibits and sells her creations, from origami garlands to decorative stationery.

She is the author of numerous books, including The Paper Bible and Furoshiki Workshop. Enter the colourful world of Adeline Klam by going to her website at
