Striking papercraft illustrations celebrate CERN and the Higgs Boson

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

As part of their 2012 retrospective, French newspaper Le Monde commissioned design studio Zim & Zou to create a series of papercraft illustrations as part of an article on CERN's advancements in seeking the Higgs Boson. The cover illustration gives us a lovely interpretation of particle collision based on the Large Hadron Collider. The other illustrations are a bit more conceptual, but visually compelling; the image below represents the Higgs Boson as the particle that gives other particles mass.

You can see the rest of the series at Zim & Zou.
