Blogtoberfest - Day 4 - Book Review

Paper: beautiful ideas for gifts and home decorations
By Claire Richardson, Photography by Polly Wreford
Ryland Peters & Small
ISBN: 1 84172 659 1

For Blogtoberfest I thought over the month I will attempt to do simple book reviews of some of my paper books.

Paper was my first book I ever purchased on the subject of making beautiful things with paper. The images are gorgeous, and there are plenty of ideas of what one could make. There is the usual stationery, books, wrapping etc. But there are a few unique items, like shoes or even a paper dress. It's a lovely book to read while curled up on the sofa, with a cuppa, however there are not many instructions. I have only made one item from the book, the chop sticks paper envelopes. Overall a pleasant book to admire.


  1. Would love to have a read of that one! I have made my own paper shoes (only for show ;o)) Love a good papery book! Thanks for the review :o)

  2. Oh I'm a bookaholic - this looks like awesome eyecandy !!!
