The Art of Paper Cutting
Paper cutting is an ancient, elegant art that dates almost as far back as the creation of paper itself. In today's multicultural world, paper cutting embraces any number of themes, designs, and images. It is an all-inclusive art that requires few tools and minimal materials. All one needs is instruction and inspiration, both of which are found in good measure in The Art of Paper Cutting. The book includes more than 20 projects that feature a range of sizes, subject matters, and techniques. Every project features step-by-step photographs and numerous helpful hints.
Author Henya Melichson has been a paper cut artist for more than twenty years. With a background in painting and drawing, Henya's paper cuts are inspired by diverse ethnic and natural motifs. Her work has appeared at museums in Europe, the United States, and Israel. A member of the Guild of American Paper Cutters, Henya has led seminars, instructed hundreds of budding paper cutters, and been interviewed for television programs.
