What a beautiful book. Filled with stunning and inventive artworks from many amazing artists. Lots and lots of wonderful images to pour over. Not a "how to" book, more an introduction to many types of artwork being created by what seems to be highly qualified hand-picked artists who have achieved so many incredible and aesthetic things with paper. A very inspiring book indeed!

This is a great book to have in your collection if you're a paper lover (like me).
I have every book that has been published out there about any kind of paper art form including papercutting, paper sculpture etc. I get these books not only as a way to learn about the history of paper and how to use it but these books are also a great source of inspiration when it comes to creating my own work.

This book in particular is very special because it gives you a glance through different worlds where paper has been used in a creative way: art, fashion...even furniture. I love the diversity of sources. The photographs are great and I enjoyed the reading too.

I highly recommend it.
Elsita :)

This is the book I pull out now when I need an inspirational and creative nudge. Examples of paper crafts range from the simple craft to examples of Fine Art paper sculptures.

Exquisite images of work in paper and cardboard. Had just taken a class in working with cardboard as an alternative medium and the book inspired us.
