Library Journal Review

The great variety of paper now available in craft stores makes many exciting new paper crafts possible. Both of these books explore the wonderful art papers, cardstock, and decorative papers that were difficult to find even a few years ago. Taylor's book, part of a popular series from Lark, has projects for game boards, table accessories, and three-dimensional items. The Jacobs's book has an imaginative selection of artistic handmade stationary, cards, and envelopes that will be treasured by recipients. Both books are suitable for beginners and are good selections for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
