Melichson, Henya. The Art of Paper Cutting. Quarry: Quayside. 2009. c.128p. illus. ISBN 978-1-59253-525-5. pap. $19.99. CRAFTS
Decorative paper cutting using a single sheet of paper produces lacy silhouettes. Melichson's very elaborate designs draw on religious and ethnic motifs from Mediterranean countries and take some practice to draw out and execute. Templates that may be photocopied and traced are provided for less-intricate projects. - Library Journal, Oct 15, 2009
