"Charming" - but not "overwhelming" in my opinion
on 3 February 2011
This sweet little book would be a romantic gift for a loved one (although a recurrent theme is being alone / not having yet found love) - or of course an essential purchase for Rob Ryan fans.
I had only seen some of Rob Ryan's greetings cards and bought this book out of curiosity as I liked them and wanted to know more - it's nice, but I'm not overwhelmed by it as some reviewers are. The quality of the book and reproductions are good, but there's no text inside (other than that in the papercuts) and I do find the artworks a & themes just slightly repetitive - I've enjoyed leafing through it, but I don't think I'll be returning again and again or buying copies as presents. Call me a cynic, but I found it slightly twee.
I'm sorry to everyone who has loved this book - but I'm giving it three stars just to highlight that's it's not EVERYONE'S cup of tea.
