an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Our non-profit research team has four new books and a couple of science papers in process right now, to be published individually over the course of 2022.
We’ll start this May with the CGB Pattern Book, closely followed by our final technical manual, CGB Volume III. A nice little workbook of blank graphs and foldable origami patterns will be available to pair with these books, and will come as a gift in our pre-order bundles (which are sold out).
Pre-orders for paper copies of the Pattern Book and Volume III are again available in our shop, with an expected May-August ship date. After we get those two out, we’ll pass out the CGB Textbook Beta Edition to our academic colleagues and our handful of early orders, and then finally head back to the press with a beautiful hard-cover coffee-table art book (just photos). I expect we will be finished with our print runs and distribution by the end of 2022.
Our pre-order price for both the Pattern Book and Volume III is $50, but may increase at the time of printing. Paper, ink and shipping are all very expensive right now (and may remain so for some time)…
If you want to cancel a pre-order at any time, for any reason, all you need to do is email email@example.com for an immediate refund, or head to our team shop and take advantage of a generous $74 per book discount to exchange for any of our bead assortments in cancellation of your paper book order. We have a whole set of lovely curated assortments at $75, with free shipping.
