Striking papercraft illustrations celebrate CERN and the Higgs Boson

Illustration for article titled Striking papercraft illustrations celebrate CERN and the Higgs Boson

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.
