I haven't had a chance to see the book personally, but the Paper Works flip through video is a very nice preview. Some of the featured art has been seen online and even on this blog, but there appears to be plenty of intriguing new work too - 900 illustrations, in fact!

Paper Works

Delicate paper is shown in the many ways it can be transformed into abstract or realistic designs.
