Great content, but poor quality book.
on 2 May 2009
This book is extremely thorough with great explanations of how to creat pop up items. Its also really good for basic ways in which to treat paper -cutting, scoring, sticking, folding, storing - extremely comprehensive and as such a great introduction to papercraft in general. Lots of helpful diagrams so I'd give it 10/10 for that. However, the quality of the book is poor - the backing is really thin card and the paper itself is that grey-ish recycled quality. I could cope with that but it is so thin you can see the text / diagrams shining through. Had I seen the quality before buying I'd have thought twice. There's not a huge discount on this book either. (Just 15% at time of writing.). That said, I'd probably buy again - its very readable, and I like the authors style - as if he was running a workshop - lots of good advice. I've given four stars - the missing one is to do with the physical quality of the book.
