Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you are looking for a craft project that incorporates existing artwork, this is the book for you. There are six small, historically significant books ready to cut out and assemble in this publication, all decorated with reproductions of the original art. People have been making books for thousands of years and books have changed dramatically from their humble beginnings. Writing was initially done on wax, clay, bone, parchment and papyrus. The Chinese discovered paper in 105A.D., but the West didn't catch on until the 12th century. With the advent of paper, printing presses and increased literacy rates, books became more and more popular. The six books to be put together are a Thai folding book, a Japanese scroll, a Book of Hours, a flip book, a moveable page book and a newspaper. All are pullout pages that include reproductions of period artwork with instructions about how they are to be cut, folded and glued or sewn. The instructions are straightforward and require only scissors, paste, tape and needle and thread (or stapler). The finished products are quite handsome and are designed to have text added by the bookmaker. The artwork is stunning and reproduced on nice heavy paper that folds well. 2000, Dutton Children's Books, $14.99. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
