Library Journal Review

Work done with a special flexible translucent paper that resembles medieval skin parchment, parchment craft originated in Colombia, the author's native country. Ospina teaches, writes, and owns a company, Pergamano, that promotes the craft. Working techniques include embossing, decorative cutting, stamping, and painting, and step-by-step projects are included for cards, table decorations, and party favors. This is a relatively new craft but one that fits in well with the increasing interest in paper crafts. Suitable for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
