Description: Stranded by a blizzard during travel, artist Hedi Kyle passed the time experimenting with paper, and invented a unique book structure that came to be known as the “Blizzard Book.” Since then, the basic folding pattern has been altered and expanded to create numerous additional designs,
including the Crown Book, Wheel of Fortune, and Blizzard Boxes. Developed by Hedi and her
protégés, a key feature of all these structures is their ability to hold contents without the use of
adhesive – there is flexibility built in. Each blizzard variation addresses a unique engineering goal, and
thus each fills a niche in the book artist’s arsenal of structures to suit different purposes. Get
“caught in a blizzard” and spend a day learning all of the structures you can create from the blizzard
