Booklist Review

You can bet on publications from the UK's Guild of Master Craftsman to provide simple yet design-worthy ideas and projects for crafts in many media. At first glance, Chesterman's collection of more than 32 projects may appear almost juvenile in their appeal; after all, how many different kinds of greetings cards can be fashioned? Papercrafts, however, extend far beyond colored papers, glue, and scissors to feature gift boxes, mobiles, displays, even 3-D creations. Materials and equipment are as simple as household projects or as complicated as special Japanese origami papers; instructions are pared down but accompanied by enough templates and illustrations to guide uncertain hands. Who could resist a slim Pied Piper spiral mobile as a birthday gift? Or a floral yule log for a Christmas decoration? --Barbara Jacobs Copyright 2003 Booklist
