To mark the launch of The Beauty Of The Fold, the second book in the series “On The Table” published by Sternberg Press, the book’s editor Charlotte Birnbaum will talk with Daniel Birnbaum about the work of Joan Sallas and the making of the publication.
Joan Sallas, a virtuoso of the fold, has meticulously researched and mastered the history and techniques of the art of the fold. With the banquet table as setting, his expertise and philosophy pour forth in the form of splendid, folded linen.
In The Beauty Of The Fold, Sallas shares his folding wisdom, which Charlotte Birnbaum contextualizes in two essays on the history of napkin folding. The texts are accompanied by an illustrated catalogue of folding techniques.
