My son was very excited to get this book.

I found comfort and familiarity in the stories I already knew and great expectation to read those I didn't.

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.

This book arrived quickly and in outstanding condition. Plenty of fun and unique projects. Also has a disc to create even more. Wonderful "unplugged" activity.

I bought this for a young boy around 10 and he loved it! The colorful pages kept his interest going and he couldn't wait to open it up and start making all the fun stuff! I'm very glad I bought this for him and that he loves it so much!
