Every one remembers their first love. And that's exactly what it was when I stumbled across Fwis and the Readymech collection of paper toys. Looking for something to do on a rainy day, I somehow ended up on the Readymech site and immediately fell in love with the color and form. And then to top it off, they were free. It was these toys that launched a fascination with paper and what was possible with a few folds and cuts.
It turns out I wasn't the only one to get turned on to the paper world via Skeletron, Tentaclopse, and Headhunter. A good many of the other paper designers working today found their inspiration from this body of work as well. Perverse, eclectic, original, and wholly hip, the Readymech series presents a collection of designs and designers that serve as good of an introduction to this genre as any other.
