All Things Paper - Book Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners - Michelle Brigham, Yvonne Li, and SNJ!

As of today All Things Paper: 20 Unique Projects from Leading Paper Crafters, Artists, and Designers is in bookstores across the United States! Worldwide distribution is underway. It's available via online book suppliers, and there are Kindle and NOOKbook versions too.

All Things Paper book

It has always been my intention with this blog to share distinctive things made of paper, and the projects in the book follow that premise. All are brand new and were created by artisans whose names you might recognize, as each has been featured here in the past. In fact, that's how the idea came about... I had the thought to bring together designers who could show just how capable and surprising simple paper can be, by making items that anyone would be proud to display in their home, wear as a fashion accessory, or give as a special gift.


The images shown here are just a small sampling of what you'll find inside.

Tote Bag DIY
Everyday Tote Bag by Richela Fabian Morgan

And so it began... many months, emails, and mouse clicks later, the result is a collection that is not only attractive, but useful too. It was very important to all of us that the projects hold up to their intended purposes, all while looking stylish indeed.

Phone Book Letter Holder DIY
Phone Book Letter Holder by Allison Patrick

One of my favorites parts of the book is that you get to know the makers... each tells why they work with paper and how they came to create their particular project. You'll also find step-by-step instructions and photographs, tips, templates, diagrams, and supply sources... everything needed to successfully recreate each design. A few of the projects are quite simple, while others will appeal to adventurous crafters who are interested in learning new skills.

Trick Box DIY
Mysterious Stationery Box by Cecelia Louie

What better way to celebrate than with a worldwide giveaway?! Tuttle Publishing will send a copy of the book to three commenters. Winners will be selected by a random number generator and notified via email, so be sure to include a way to be contacted within your comment. If you would like to share the link as an extra entry, let me know in a separate comment that you have done so. Giveaway ends on Sunday, June 16. Good luck!

Such beautiful work. I would love to find the time to work on some of these type of projects, but with 3 5 and under time is sparse.

Joelle said...

Congratulations on your new book! Those pictures are fabulous! I am a new reader and have been inspired by your site to try my hand a quilling and other paper crafts. I have recently started into Papier Maché, découpage, and other methods and am working on several designs. I hope this book starts a new craze in paper.

Paper, paper, paper! Smooth and crisp to textured and soft as suede...fold it, tear it, cut it, color it, paint it, write on it, or just look at it, touch it, smell it...aaahhh, paper. Thank you for putting together a book of wonderful projects and for giving one of us a chance to win a copy.

Ron Gutman said...

I've had a love affair with paper since I was a child. My parents even had to hide paper from me to avoid a house filled with paper chain jungles! This book is right up my alley and I like what I see from the few photos posted here. It would be a welcome addition to my library and a great inspirational reference and resource. Hats off to all the contributing designers and to you Ann for bringing this to our attention!
