I heard about Rob Ryan's work from my art teacher, and studied it this year as pieces of art but it wasn't until I read the book that I realised that it's a lot more deep than just pretty pictures and nice words. The work is really beautiful, and I particularly liked the fact you could see how it was made and all the hours that went into it. Some of the double pages take your breath away and it was more than what I expected from the book. The writing was also serendipitously good; handled badly it could have been twee or pretentious, but it seemed childlike whilst still relatable, to me. The book really struck a chord, and I'd really recommend it.

This is my favourite book by Rob Ryan. I originally bought this as a gift and have ordered my own copy!

As with Rob's other creations, the illustrations/paper cut outs are absolutely stunning. You find yourself looking at the amazing pages and taking in the beautiful designs for hours.

The words in this particular book 'THIS IS FOR YOU' pulls at your heart strings and is very powerful. It can mean a lot of things to a certain someone. The journey is about being alone and finding someone and dreams in your life.

I gave 'THIS IS FOR YOU' 4 out of five stars because I think this book isn't for everyone and if you are giving this as a gift, pick carefully. There is a huge element of sadness that can pull you down but for the right person it can easily become a wonderful keepsake.

I bought this for a colleague, 'who has everything', for her birthday as all of the reviews said it was a gift you could give to anyone. She was thrilled and sat up late into the night to finish reading it. Seems like the reviews were right.

Much anticipated book by the fantastic artist Rob Ryan- a must have for any stylish coffee table- this is a book to keep and tresure, at last a collection of his beautiful paper cuts to have at home, a real gem.

This is a really special little book full Rob Ryans incredible papercuts. I have a copy myself which I love and have since bought several more copies to give to friends. They have always been received with delight. A book to treasure.

I bought this book after seeing Rob Ryans work and was curious to see more, it was superb value and is such a lovely book! The whole book is a story illustrated page by page with his cut out images, it must have took a long time to make and is a really beautiful item to have!
