I Heart Ilana

I had always made my girlfriend (now my wife), Ilana, gifts for Valentine's Day. I'd use paint samples, plastic dinosaurs, sushi containers, and whatever I could get my hands on. In 2009, I was wracking my brain to think of her next gift. I was walking around West Los Angeles and I remember being in a store and seeing a book that had it's pages folded sort of haphazardly into no particular shape. I thought, "It's too bad they didn't make it into something, like a word, or a pattern, or a... HEART." That was it. I had an idea. So I bought a couple old Reader's Digest Condensed Books (because their covers are beautiful), and started experimenting. It took me a couple of runs to get used to the pages, and how the shapes can become distorted if they're not folded properly, until I ended up with my first heart. Ilana loved it. And I loved doing it so much, I started folding them in my spare time. A friend visited our apartment and noticed the thirty or forty folded books I had just sitting there on the table in our guest room. She told me about Etsy. The rest is history.
