Kirigami: The Art Of Folding & Cutting Paper Paperback – November 1, 2013
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Dec 13 This book is a collaboration between two authors: Laurence Arnac has a background in graphic design, and Ho Huu An trained as an oceanographer - but has a love of papercraft. There is much to admire in this title - but I wouldn't recommend it for the papercutting novice. You have to be pretty handy with a craft knife to manage any of the beautiful projects. Having said that, each of the 40 papercraft projects is labelled both for cutting and folding difficulty. And there is a good tutorial section front-of-book which includes a diagram of practice cuts for learners. As you would expect, this is a template-based book. The projects are divided into Card Projects, Table Decorations, Special Occasions, and Christmas. There's pop-up card action aplenty, plus several boxes and ornaments. One of the cards, Celestial Sphere, is a beautiful star-topped slice form (slice forms are amazing interlocking 3-D constructions that fold flat to send). Cosmic! And I can't imagine anybody not being suitably impressed by the baby grand piano pop-up. There are several lovely Christmas decorations that you could send as gifts, such as the Snowflake Wall Hanging or the Reindeer Wall Hanging. This book is intended for hand-cutters, but if you have a digital papercutter, you could scan in the pattern and make them up (for personal use only, that goes without saying). To sum up: a pleasant collection of papercutting projects with year-round variety. * thepapercraftpost.blogspot.co.uk * Oct 13 The traditional art of Japanese paper cutting and folding is fully explained in this book. 40 projects have been included for you to hone your skills.
