“When I was five years old, my dad was working at the New York World’s Fair, and he had gone to the Dutch Pavilion and he bought this kit—Make Your Own Medieval Village. One night after supper, we cleared the dining room table and cut everything out and glued everything together. It was like magic. I thought, ‘Wow, I want to do that.’ … After watching him build it, I went out to the driveway and drew our VW bus from all sides on a big sheet of cardboard, cut it out, folded it, then glued it together. I’ve been making things ever since.”

—Kell Black, author of Paper Chess: Create Your Own Chess Set with a Detachable Board and 2 Full Sets of Punch-out Pieces
