This is not a bookmaking instruction manual for beginners. Those interested in the artistry of paper folding for practical use or creative expression will pore over the gorgeous photos.and be inspired by the handmade papers, novel notions and accoutrement, clever examples, and manageable instructions. A lovely book for handmade-book lovers.-Booklist

Note: I was disappointed that the cover flyleaf of my copy arrived somewhat mangled when upon further examination I suspect that it was intentionally folded that way i.e. The Art of the Fold. Having made something near 100 handmade books including several of the examples in this book, I am neither master or novice, though I did pick up numerous tips and process nuances on my very first read. You will enjoy this.
It's also a physically gorgeous book. The book band feels good. The cover feels good. The paper weight is gorgeous. The colors are wonderful. It felt like eating a delicious chocolate bar the whole time I was using it. Yum yum!
