Publisher Comments:

Join the creator of The Black Apple, Emily Martin, on a trip through her magical world of paper dolls, imaginary places, and clever craft projects.

Inside this book you'll find 21 sweet, mysterious characters with clothes and accessories all their own — from a busy beekeeper's daughter to a bird-loving librarian. You'll also find 16 dolls ready to be designed and brought to life by you Emily will show you how to draw, paint, and personalize your way to a little paper replica of anyone you'd like.

With basic art supplies and the instructions in the book, you'll also learn to:

- Make a custom wedding invitation or holiday card
- Color, cut, paste, and frame a unique family portrait
- Design your own paper clothes, shoes, glasses, and the like
- Cut and fold an armoire for doll-sized clothes
- Build a paper theater using one of the TK illustrated backdrops
- Direct a stop-motion film with jointed paper doll actors
- And so much more!

So sharpen your scissors and get ready for a unique and wonderful adventure.

Review:

"This book is packed full of loveliness...all with Emily's unique blend of irreverent sweetness. Please be seated with smelling salts nearby: Fainting might occur. It's that good." Amy Karol, author of Bend-the-Rules Sewing and Bend-the-Rules with Fabric

I'll start this out by saying that I haven't bought this--yet. I'm saving up my coffee money to get it for myself for Christmas. I have, however, spent a lot of time gazing at this book whenever I happen to be in Powell's.

I've long admired the soft, gentle art style that is so indicative of Black Apple. Each character comes with their own quirky backstory for you to enjoy, along with tons of accessories, and even a companion or two. I'm also really fond of the backdrops she has included; I've never seen any other set of paper dolls come with so many extras and such attention to detail. I'm really excited about the section on designing your own dolls.
