YA-- Attractive color photographs are coupled with step-by-step diagrams in this beautiful book that not only demonstrates dozens of papier mache craft projects, but also introduces the artistic work of professionals as inspiration and art resource. A brief history of papier mache, including a variety of contemporary ethnic traditions as well as a basic outline of techniques and inexpensive materials, enhances the wide-ranging projects such as jewelry, masks, vases, and sculptured forms for beginners as well as advanced students. Going far beyond the average craft book, this is a welcome addition or replacement for outdated materials in arts and crafts collections. --Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, MD
