The Art and Craft of Handmade Books: This innovative approach to bookbinding demonstrates an array of creative techniques that elevate handmade books into extraordinary works of art. Easy-to-follow, well-illustrated directions for more than 25 patterns explain how to make seven different kinds of books with pop-up panels and pages that “explode” from the spine as well as slipcases, tassels, and other distinctive features. A full-color photo gallery, with contributions from more than 60 artists, offers further inspiration for enhancing and personalizing projects by using alphabets, bestiaries, botanical illustrations, and other designs. The author includes a glossary of terms as well as information on materials and tools.
Thrilling Quilling: The Ultimate Quiller’s Sourcebook: Add pizzazz to picture frames, notebooks, vases, boxes, bags, or any everyday item that could use a decorative touch. The centuries-old craft of quilling involves rolling, shaping, and gluing strips of paper into ornamental designs. From quick and easy individual motifs to larger, more elaborate combinations, here are more than 100 designs with countless applications. Quilling requires very little equipment and few materials — just an inexpensive investment in a manual quilling tool, glue, and paper. With a little practice, you’ll master the techniques of coiling, pinching, fringing, weaving, and husking. In addition, the book features galleries of imaginative ideas that will provide further inspiration and encourage you to develop new ideas and creative approaches.

Beginning and experienced folders of all ages will appreciate these unusual and eye-catching models.
