If you were wondering why the publication date of this AMAZING pop up book was so long delayed . . .LOOK AT IT!!!! It's absolutely astonishing! Perfect color and design . . . meets flawless paper mechanics. Everyone who has seen this book has been bug eyed and drop jawed. The ones who haven't been stunned speechless, won't stop talking about it.

You'll see five exquisite, widely varied bouquets and arrangements that you can flip through, or--by employing the elastic cloth bands on the front and back covers to hold the pages open--actually place in a room as an arrangement, or as a beautiful paper sculpture. And the carefully combined color choices in each "Book-ay" guarantee that you'll find colors you will want to display.

And because the blossoms are printed on beautiful heavy card stock, you'll enjoy "playing" with it too! In fact, the perfect pictures on the back cover invite you to open the tiger lilies, to arrange the plumes of the bird of paradise, and to fan open the petals of the iris. (Just raise the lower back petals and the iris blooms!) You'll feel like Mom and Daddy Nature!

I think this may be the surprise gift of the year. (Yes, I did buy six.) Surprise! Love ya! Enjoy!

We give this book for housewarming and gifts instead of a bottle of wine. Everyone loves it! Great gift. Fresh flowers, always.

The flower "arrangements" are spectacular. I have them on permanent display and change the selection according to whim.

I love pop-up books and am always adding to my collection. When I came across this book on Amazon, I decided to purchase one as a gift for someone special. She was delighted to receive it! I actually watched her expression as she opened the book, and then her expressions of delight as she flipped through the pages - that alone was worth the price!

There are five gorgeous pop-up bouquets in this book, true masterpieces and a reflection of quality paper engineering. There is a bouquet of spring flowers; an array of bright, tropical flowers; a floating lotus garden; a vase of lilies in vivid hues; and, a delightful bunch of roses. The colors are in turns vibrant and muted, and the paper engineering is amazing. The book can be opened to any one of the bouquets and set upon a desk or any even top to be displayed as a beautiful arrangement. I intend on getting one for myself and giving many more to friends as gifts!

I bought five of these paper blossoms books. I'm very pleased and happy with these Ray Marshall books. The colors, patterns, cuts of these paper flower arrangements just amaze me. I also like the diversity of the five flower arrangements - ranging from Hawaiian, tropical, Asian, Victorian England, etc. feel. You can stare in awe at the details of these paper blossom bouquets for a long period of time. I recently gave this book as part of a birthday present to my co-worker, and she really loved the book (she loves flowers and making cards). I love pop-up books because I'm always fascinated by all the time and details pop-up book artists put into their work. I'm so very thankful that Ray Marshall made this book. This book is absolutely one of the best things to give as a gift. It's something that lasts forever. This book is better than a card and it's better than dealing with the waste and guilt of having dead flowers. I truly can't think of any household that wouldn't put this book to good decorative use. This book definitely gets people's attention. When I gave this book to my co-worker, this book stopped my boss in her tracks, and she asked, "What's that?" All of Ray Marshall's paper blossom bouquets caught her attention, and she thought it was a good idea as well. I'm happy with the size of the book and flower arrangements. And I like how the elastic holder keeps the pages and book protected. This book is a conversation starter, and is elegant, beautiful, unique, and different. It's definitely a keepsake book that belongs with all your photo albums. Like I said before, this book is such a great concept. I'm so happy that someone like Ray Marshall was able to turn this idea and book into a reality for all of us to appreciate and enjoy. I really don't know how Ray Marshall is going to top this book, but I'm looking forward to any future work from this man!

I've given this twice as a gift and I have one for myself. It's beautiful and convenient. I leave it as a display on the coffee table and change it whenever the mood strikes, and when I need the table surface, I just close the book. The straps hold the pages open well. If you have it open to the first or last bouquet it can look a little uneven, but that's easily fixed by slipping a few coasters under one of the covers.

I purchased this book because I was impressed with the idea of having a table bouquet from pop ups/paper engineering. I was impressed upon receiving it that there are light paper inserts to help protect the pages. For some reason though, the tropical flower arrangement doesn't open quite right. The other arrangements open well and are pretty (and no pollen or dead flowers ;o)).I was just expecting to be more wowed by the arrangements - the reason for the four stars.
