Naomi Shapira

Naomi Shapira is a graphic designer, an artist of papercuts (cuts papers for 40 years), and gives lectures and workshops to children and adults. She works with a cutter knife and uses white acid-free paper. “We photographed the paper-cuts in the book, leaving space between them and the colorful backgrounds, to create natural shadows which emphasize the authentic cutting. This helps people to realize that the illustrations are actually cut”.
