Cut It, Fold It

Drawn from Robert Freidus' extensive collection, Cut it, Fold it: Build it with Paper is a major exhibition at V&A Museum of Childhood featuring nearly 200 examples of architectural paper models. Half the models are still flat as they were sold.

Collecting and making paper models has been a popular pastime since the later part of the eighteenth century, with many companies producing very collectible models. There was no pre-cutting or scoring on these models, so patience and a steady hand were crucial.
