May 2015 When is a book not a book? When it has an ISBN number, looks like a book but is actually filled with pop out boxes! There are thirty in here all ready to be pressed out and assembled. But wait - there is something else to do first as one side of the box is printed in color, but the other side is drawn only so it can be colored in. At the front and back of the book there is information about the patterns. These were originally printed onto fabric and designed by the author who works for Moda. As this is a book ostensibly aimed at young girls there is a section here all about how patterns are drawn, printed onto fabric and the names for different patterns. I say ostensibly as there is nothing childish about a book of useful gift boxes - they are ideal for storing small items in around the home or giving to people with small gifts inside. The card is not very thick so anything going through the mail will need plenty of protection, but they are fine as pretty containers. Each page has one or two boxes plus a tag showing the box made up and with a descriptive name. Patterns include flowers, animals, stripes, spots and there are also several plains. On the reverse the card is smooth rather than shiny and there is a design of some type to color in. These are rather different, showing people doing various things, clothing, woodland scenes, little creatures or plants etc. The drawing is finely detailed so sharp pencils or fine pens are needed. Felt pens don't bleed through as long as they are water based and not permanent markers. Boxes have creases where to fold and you can have the printed or colored side outwards as you choose. You won't find much in the way of assembly instructions but it is all fairly simple to work out - younger children will need some help however. Some reverses are blank for your own doodling, a nice touch. In short, this is a book that is going to appeal to adults as much as children and anybody fond of this designer's fabrics in particular. * Myshelf.com *About the Author:
