The Tomb Of The Mughal Emperor Humayun In India Paper Model
by S.Umekawa & PBS

Created by Japanese designers S.Umekawa and PBS exclusively for Canon website, this is the paper model version of the Humayun's Tomb, also known as the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. 

The tomb was commissioned by Humayun's wife Hamida Banu Begum in 1562 AD, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, a Persian architect. It was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent, and is located in Nizamuddin East, Delhi, India, close to the Dina-panah citadel also known as Purana Qila (Old Fort), that Humayun founded in 1533

It was also the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale. The tomb was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and since then has undergone extensive restoration work, which is still underway. 

Besides the main tomb enclosure of Humayun, several smaller monuments dot the pathway leading up to it, from the main entrance in the West, including one that even pre-dates the main tomb itself, by twenty years; it is the tomb complex of Isa Khan Niyazi, an Afghan noble in Sher Shah Suri's court of the Suri dynasty, who fought against the Mughals, constructed in 1547 CE. - Wikipedia

Criado pelos designers japoneses S.Umekawa e PBS exclusivamente para o site da Canon, esta é a versão em papel do Túmulo de Humayun, também conhecido como como Tumba do Imperador Mughal Humayun, o mais antigo mausoléu mogol de Deli e uma das mais extraordinárias construções históricas da cidade.

Foi a primeira das grandes construções do período mogol. O mausoléu foi mandado construir pela viúva de Humayun no século XVI em honra do seu marido. É declarado pela Unesco como parte do património mundial desde 19993.

A sua importância arquitetónica-paisagística é vista sobretudo no fato de ter fundamentado a concepção que une mausoléus a jardins. Assim, teria isnpirado o modelo para o Taj Mahal, em Agra. - Wikipedia

The Paper Thing

A nice little paper model of the IBM 5100 Portable Computer with box. This cool model is offered by Cloe Serrato, from Spanish blog Casita De Papel.

Um pequeno e bonito modelo de um computador antigo, o IBM 5100 Portable Computer, com caixa para transporte. Este modelo bem bacana e diferente é oferecido por Cloe Serrato, lá do blog espanhol Casita De Papel.


The Real Thing
The IBM 5100 Portable Computer was a portable computer introduced in September 1975, six years before the IBM PC. It was the evolution of a prototype called the SCAMP (Special Computer APL Machine Portable) that was developed at the IBM Palo Alto Scientific Center in 1973. In January 1978 IBM announced the IBM 5110, its larger cousin, and in February 1980 IBM announced the IBM 5120. The 5100 was withdrawn in March 1982. When the IBM PC was introduced in 1981, it was originally designated as the IBM 5150, putting it in the "5100" series, though its architecture was not directly descended from the IBM 5100. - Wikipedia

O IBM 5100 Portable Computer foi um computador pessoal apresentado ao mercado em setembro de 1975, seis anos antes do IBM PC. Embora o IBM 5100 pareça grande para os padrões de hoje, em 1975 era uma incrível realização técnica colocar um computador completo, com uma grande quantidade de memória ROM e RAM, monitor CRT e uma unidade de fita numa embalagem tão pequena. - Wikipedia

Papermau - One Year Today

Papermau`s First Banner

Little Urban Diorama - First Model Posted
Papermau today celebrates one year of existence. Exactly on June 22, 2011, I did the first of 1930 posts, counting this one. What started as a help in a school project  for my daughter Malú was becoming a fun hobby for me, a place where I can share my own creations and  free paper models of designers from around the world. I made many friends, some others who supported me at first, turned the face to me, ignoring the blog and my models. It does not really affect me, but I'm trying to figure out what I did to displease them. Well, during this year, 1930 posts were made, and every day new free paper designs were posted on the blog. I published 149 exclusive models of my own and more than 2300 free paper models made ​​by designers from around the world. Papermau had a total of  2,194,569  page views, until the time of writing this post, and an average of 269,300 page views monthly, at the time. I think this is a nice number for a blog that began as a search for a school project, and that after one year, thanks to all of you who daily prestige Papermau with visits, comments and suggestions of links (always welcome and appreciated, really!), became a reference for all those who like paper models, papercraft, origami, kirigami, decoupage, and all other names that can give the art of shaping the paper; an art, which for me, first of all, is a great way to relax from the stresses of daily living.

A Great Thank For All Of You!!!

This series of banners were posted daily during October/2011 and here they are, animated for the first time.

Old Church / Medieval Castle -  The Most Downloaded Model
Papermau comemora hoje 1 ano de existência. Exatamente no dia 22 de junho de 2011, eu fiz o primeiro de 1930 posts, contando com este. O que começou como uma ajuda em um trabalho escolar para minha filha Malú foi tornando-se um divertido passatempo para mim, um lugar onde posso compartilhar minhas próprias criações e paper models gratuítos de designers de todo o mundo. Eu fiz muitos amigos, alguns outros, que me apoiaram no início, viraram a cara para mim, ignorando o blog e meus modelos. Isso realmente não me afeta, mas eu fico tentando descobrir o que eu fiz para desagradar essas pessoas.
Bem, durante o ano foram feitos 1930 posts, e todos os dias foram postados novos modelos de papel no blog. eu publiquei 149 modelos exclusivos, de minha autoria e mais de 2300 modelos de papel gratis feitos por designers de todo o mundo. Papermau teve um total de 2.194.569 visualizações de páginas, até o momento em que escrevo este post e mantém no momento uma média de 269.300 visualizações de páginas mensais. Eu acho que esse é um belo número para um blog que começou como uma pesquisa para um trabalho de escola, e que, depois de um ano, graças a todos vocês, que diariamente prestigiam Papermau, com visitas, comentários e sugestões de links (sempre bem vindas e apreciadas, de verdade!!!), tornou-se uma referência para todos aqueles que gostam de paper models, papercraft, origami, kirigami, decoupage, e todos os outros nomes que se pode dar a arte de moldar o papel; uma arte, que para mim, antes de mais nada, é uma ótima forma de relaxar das tensões da vida cotidiana.

Um Grande Muito Obrigado A Todos Vocês!!!
