I first learned of a new book featuring the art of papercutting on Elsa Mora's blog where she gave a sneak peek of the book cover. My jaw dropped. A while later I saw the book, now titled Paper Cutting, on the Chronicle Books Publishing site, scheduled for release in April. Elsa also released some preview shots of the book. I pre-ordered it on Amazon and last week I got it. I know most of the artists included in the book, but I'm happy to find some names that were new to me. For instance, Mia Pearlman, whom I especially loved. I liked the little texts about each featured artist, and the introduction by Natalie Avella was well-written. I really liked the book format, the quality and size of the pictures, and the layout overall. The only downside is that a lot if not all of the pictures are available online (in fact I have most of them on my computer), so I'm disappointed there weren't any new works featured.
