Book Expo was just incredible and I met a lot of amazing people!
Perhaps the most unexpected surprise was a chance to meet Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander, two amazing paper artists and stars of the Origami documentary “Behind the Folds.”
I was signing copies of “Origami Yoda” and suddenly there they were. Here’s proof:
The bad news was that we only had a minute to talk and I wasn’t able to stay in the city long enough to see their folding demonstration the next day.
But I did get to visit their publishers’ booth later and see some of their work. Including their unbelievable alligator and the amazing “Wilbur the Pig” which was featured in the documentary. Some pig! The liveliness is astounding. It’s one of my all-time favorite Origami pieces.
