Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This rich anthology of nearly 200 royalty-free cut-paper designs will be a valuable addition to the resource library of any commercial artist, designer, or craftsperson.

In China, these cutouts are pasted onto walls and windows, and onto numerous smaller objects, where they serve both as ornaments and good-luck charms. Some are also used as embroidery patterns.

Included in this treasury of authentic graphics: peonies and other flowers, pandas and bamboo, horses, dragons, fish, cats and kittens, insects, landscapes, peacocks and other birds, pagodas, and more. Stylized, whimsical, and charming, designs appear in varied sizes and shapes, including diamond, oval, and rectangular frames.

Convenient and inexpensive, Authentic Chinese Cut-Paper Designs offers a versatile and practical source of inspiration and motifs for fabrics, wallpaper, needlework, decoupage, and many other arts and crafts.

Original Dover (1988) publication.

Synopsis:

Rich anthology of nearly 200 black-and-white motifs includes pandas, bamboo, cranes, dragons, peacocks, florals, landscapes, and many other traditional images in stylized, whimsical renderings. Royalty-free.
