A very nicely laid out book with a full page photo on the right, and three smaller, related designs on the left. Text is kept to a minimum allowing the visuals to take centre stage, and the book is divided up by types of design, making it easy to dip in and out. If there is any small complaint to be made it could be that animals are not very well represented at only one chapter with three subheadings, where plants get four chapters with at least eight subheadings each. However, I find much to inspire me and will probably buy other books in the series.

Delightful. Inspiring. The patterns and designs contained in this book are really inspirational and I can see I will be dipping into it many times. Although none of the designs are specifically related to the Quilling pictures I make, many if not practically all of them are very easily adaptable to the paper quilling (paper filigree) craft.

i would still buy this book and probably the rest in the series. i just feel like i'm reading a tv series and the patterns provided are handed out in batches/episodes.

The Fusama Door designs are an insight into the world of Karakami woodblock designs in Japan. Before WW11 the Grosvenor Art College, in Chester, England used to specialize in woodblock printing some of which were three hundred years old; this College no longer exists but there is a gap in the market in U.K. and France to take up these ideas again as a result of the market for fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes and combined dressing tables, which are O.K. on the inside but have only woodgrain mock finish which often look tacky when assembled in the room. The art design of the Japaneese Fusama is softer and kinder and often in an eggshell finish and does not show finger marks as easily: it is also restfull and calming to look at if one is in bed with the flue!
