Making a camera out of paper doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do, but the Paper Skin by Leica manages to get around any foreseeable problems. This is achieved by not using the material for the entirety of its construction. Instead, the body of the X2 model has simply been covered in a specially treated paper, which has been dubbed Constellation Jade.
Designed by Fedrigoni, a specialist in fine Italian papers for designers and printers, the Paper Skin by Leica is a limited edition version with only 25 put into production. With this is mind, the $2000 price tag doesn't seem so ludicrous. The classy box it comes in was designed by packaging manufacturer Edelmann.
