I apologize for this being such so harsh, but I truly feel this is a fair review. It's too low level, and even if you aren't artistic, you can do better than this!
The book is very well organized and written. You can tell the author, editor and publisher nurtured and invested in this publication. I own several books on card making and scrapbooking (around 30 or so) and among those are two other books on Asian papercrafting... but they all pale in comparison to this book.
I first saw Scrapbook Asian Style in a bookstore while on vacation in Singapore. I was so tempted to buy it, but it was a bit pricey (it was listed at more than three times the Amazon price and I was still tempted). As soon as I got home though (and that was weeks later, after visiting several other Asian countries) I took a chance and went online in search of Scrapbook Asian Style. That it stayed on my mind that long is testament to how great a book it is. I was delighted to find it on Amazon. It's one of my favorite treasures from my vacation and also one of my favorite books on the subject. I can stare at pages in this book over and over and it never gets old. Yes, I love it that much.
I highly recommend it-- even if you aren't scrapbooking an Asian trip. The layouts are universal. There is a simplicity and yet a boldness of color and design that is very intoxicating. I've had this book for several months and I'm glad I purchased it every time I flip it open. I'm certain you will be too.
I got much much more. The book gave insights to the symbolism important to each of the Asian cultures
Many many beautiful examples wit descriptions of how the elements of designs worked together
There was a whole section on using fabric Duh! Why haven't I ever thought if that
Thank you for such a wonderful book
