  • I highly recommend all three of these books – beautifully put together and not the least bit stingy with the content either! These guys are HEFTY.

    “Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut” is probably my favourite of the three.

    Thanks Jessica!!!

  • Seems to be a ton of books coming out about paper art.

  • Kyle

    I like how you used your front door mat to take the photos on… 😉

  • gah! those books are beautiful. i just wanna hold one, they look so sturdy and packed with exciting things.

  • Sascha

    I noticed the same thing, Kyle.

    The books look awesome. If only I wasn’t saving money to move out.

  • that collage book looks fantastic! alas, same situation as sascha.

  • Catherine
