I have two ArtFold books and will invest in more. I teach first grade and the kids find them so interesting. I find them relaxing to create.
My wife loved rereading Jane Eyre and had a lot of fun folding the pages. The finished product is a quite handsome accent in our home, and totally fits in since we're such book freaks. The one-star review of the pre-folded volume makes it clear it's best to do it yourself.
An awesome way to read a classic and then turn it into a creative art piece for your home! I loved it :)
The quality of these these was really disappointing. I had gotten a completed one in store, and the pages were smashed and the overall quality was not at all as pictured. Definite return.
