I have only recently gotten into the whole "papercraft" world, but this book has fully launched me over the edge. Interesting interviews and great papercraft projects all the way around. The template disk is also fantastic. These are truly some creative individuals!

I have been in the custom paper toy community for almost a year now and this is an outstanding collection of the greatest urban paper crafters the world has to offer.

Matt Hawkins did an excellent job compiling the works of all the great artists and the included interviews gives you some hindsight of what goes into these creations and the lives of the artists. This book goes out and gives you the introduction to paper crafting and tutorials as to building the provided toys and suggestions on creating your own. I love that the book comes with the bonus dvd so I do not have to cut up this book.

Hopefully in the future there will be a sequel and my skills will will be advanded enough to be asked to submit an entry.

I bought this book knowing it was used. It was in great shape, the spine showed some use, but that was to be expected, especially for a soft-cover. I am really happy with this book, and that it was packaged well to keep it safe during shipping. I would definitely buy from here again!

This is a pretty hard to find papercraft book. I was excited to find it here. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to start their own army of creative paper monsters. Beware: it is highly addictive!

Very inspiring for papercraft beginners and hardcore enthusiasts. Great design ideas from many well known artists. The book comes with a CD that has printable copies of all the models in the book and blank templates of some of the designs so you can color your own. This is a great book for your urban papercraft collection.

My son adores paper toys! He must have made 50 of them in the last few months. These are really great designs but having to cut them out has proven to be one time-consuming and challenging step too many. Look for books that have perforated designs like Paper Toy Monsters!

It's an amazing book. I love it. Matt Hawkins is beyond talented. I look forward to his work and appreciate how helpful he is when it comes to asking for a specific toy. The book was in perfect condition and I am fully engulfed in creating all the little characters.
