To be honest, I was expecting something a little different to what it turned out to be. I was expecting more step-by-step do-it-yourself, and less facts-and-figures-and-history... though I am far from dissatisfied by what is actually is...

Being a hands-on kinda guy and somewhat of a tinkerer and odds'n'sods craftsman, I was quite impressed with the calibre of the artwork displayed, and found much inspiration from the background and extra information provided, which complimented the DIY projects rather than swamping them at all. So the unexpected extras simply became enhancements, and what could be bad about that?!

Chapter 3 would have to be one of my favourites, as pop-ups have always fascinated me, and the sheer scope of possibility boggles the mind... from something quite basic like a set of stairs, through to something that deserves space in an Art Gallery that could easily take a skilled paper craftsperson a month to construct.

Chapter 2 is also a highlight for me, in that I have been an Origami practition of no great repute for longer than I care to remember... I still find the urge to fold orchids out of zig-zag papers irresistable when sitting at the pub quietly nursing a pint of good clear apple cider, with a dash of blackcurrant juice... tastes like big boy's ribena.

Overall, quite a stunner, and a pleasant surprise from cover to cover. If you are a beginner craftsperson, you should seriously consider this as both inspiration and reference manual, and a more experienced practitioner will still find this a delightful source of fresh ideas.
