This second offering from Michael Jacobs is even more fun then the first book that he did with wife Judy. Michael is the Creative Director of the Creative Zone in Seattle, Washington and is a paper engineer extraordinaire!
His instructions are very easy to follow and the sample projects are a must do for anyone who loves paper. With the twenty-three templates provided for pop ups, sliders, swivels, dimensional triptych, pedestal cards, flips, easel cards and envelopes you can create hundreds of cards. Michael uses simple tools and limited supplies to create his designs and is a great example of an artist who not only believes in but practices "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle".
My favorite projects from the book are the "flip cards", but all of the projects are so good that I'm sure I will do them all.
Love the book and have added it to my collection.
