Item details

This is my second book. It is rare--but I have a few copies.

Everyone loves a good book, but what’s better than one you’ve made by hand? And not just any straightforward book, but simple pop-up books, flip books, magic pamphlets, pop-up maps, and accordions! Esther K Smith, author of How to Make Books, unlocks the secrets of making tricky book forms even if you’ve never worked with paper before.

While some of these 25 projects can be made by middle school children with help, I designed them for adults—the adult who’s a kid at heart! With step-by-step directions and charming illustrations, a few carefully placed cuts and an array of folds and twists almost magically become a colorful, multidimensional book.

My 5th book, MAKING BOOKS WITH KIDS is the one to get for ages 6 - ∞ (and beyond)

I ordered two of these, as gifts, and they came quickly, each inscribed for the intended person. True to its theme of using paper to craft things, the package was lovingly put together by hand. This was a wonderful buying experience!

A must-have for all artists who work with paper. Delightful projects, clearly described. An excellent gift, too!
