Publisher's Weekly Review

Découpage, which originated in 18th-century France and literally means "applied cutouts," is deceptively simple; in fact, it takes a steady hand to cut out the intricate details of the paper and a good design sense to apply the patterns in a way that enhances a piece. Linsley (Leslie Linsley's High-Style, Low-Cost Decorating Ideas), whose own découpage work has sold at high-end retailers like Bergdorf Goodman, shares many inspiring ideas for using this craft and suggestions on finding pieces to decorate, deciding on a design, and laying out the cutwork. Easy-to-follow instructions lack detailed photographs but do feature advice on handling paper, fabric, pressed flowers, and wallpaper, along with a detailed review of the materials needed as well as instructions for making the author's signature découpaged glass plates. A good choice for public libraries whose patrons are interested in craft projects. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved All rights reserved.
