Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Earth Then and Now records the dramatic way our planet has changed over the past century. On one page is a specific part of the world as it was 5, 20, 50 or even 100 years ago. On the facing page is the same place as it looks today. Each stark visual comparison tells a compelling story — a melting glacier, an expanding desert, an encroaching cityscape, a natural disaster. Perfect for paper crafters, beginner and experienced.

Earth Then and Now reminds us that nothing is without a cost. Highly topical and thought provoking chapters in this book include: Creative Cards is a how-to guide to turning plain paper into personalized and unique gift cards, boxes, bags, tags, and wrapping paper. The book shows how to transform plain paper into something special, and how to wrap a gift for a beautiful presentation. Environmental change: Bearing witness to the effects of global warming
