Over the course of a year, August 2014 - August 2015, artist and papersmith Charles Young each day handcrafted a new, miniature model for his Paperholm city project. Created by hand, using watercolor paper and PVA glue, these intricate models are both technically brilliant and charming.
Charles began his model-making while he was a student at the University of Edinburgh, where he completed his M.Arch degree. The buildings and structures he’s created, many of which include complex moving parts, are diverse and include houses, windmills, aircraft, merry-go-rounds, elevators, towers, the list goes on.
The artist has brought these enchanting models to life by producing hand animated mini movies of the models which have moving parts, to great effect. The complete archive can be admired here.
