"Paper Collage Chinese Style provides an excellent intro to a niche papercraft, and a fascinating insight into Chinese papercrafting and artistic traditions." -The Papercraft Post blog
"The book is divided into four chapters plus an introduction. In the introduction the concept of paper collage is explained. The introduction explains that the techniques in the book are based off of traditional Chinese painting. Chapter One explains the basics and creativity of paper collage and then Chapter Two discusses the materials, tools and basic techniques. Chapter Three and Chapter Four have projects!! ... The projects get harder and more artistic as they go ... They look so amazing! I love how easy the book makes it look and how creative you can be with the projects. I can imagine using them for framed art or to make special cards." -Crafty Moms Share blog
