The second publication in the On the Table series, that explore the encounter between food and art, is dedicated to the art of the fold.
Joan Sallas, a virtuoso of the fold, has meticulously researched and mastered the history and techniques of the art of the fold. With the banquet table as setting, his expertise and philosophy pour forth in the form of splendid, folded linen.
In this precious book, Sallas shares his folding wisdom, which Charlotte Birnbaum contextualizes in two essays on the history of napkin folding. The texts are accompanied by an illustrated catalogue of folding techniques.
