Matt Hawkins did an excellent job compiling the works of all the great artists and the included interviews gives you some hindsight of what goes into these creations and the lives of the artists. This book goes out and gives you the introduction to paper crafting and tutorials as to building the provided toys and suggestions on creating your own. I love that the book comes with the bonus dvd so I do not have to cut up this book.
Hopefully in the future there will be a sequel and my skills will will be advanded enough to be asked to submit an entry.

This is a pretty hard to find papercraft book. I was excited to find it here. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to start their own army of creative paper monsters. Beware: it is highly addictive!
