Everyone knows bridges are to cross -- to get to the other side. But did you know that some bridges carry llamas loaded with firewood, some let people dance over lazy rivers, some were forts for defending castles, and some were crossed by emperors and popes? From a simple log to woven webs of steel, bridges reflect our values, our lifestyles. Feast your eyes on these bridges from around the world, all painstakingly created with intricately cut paper, and you will come to realize that crossing is only one reason for having a bridge.
