Yeah, happy! Andreas gave me a book I have wanted for a long time. I am so impressed by all paper cutting artists that have come forward during the last years. It is such a basic technique, but they have transformed it to something very tricky and artistic with great skill and a lot of patience. In the book “Paper Cutting – Contemporary Artists – Timeless Craft” some of todays best paper cutting artists in the world are presented. And it is fantastic to see there different styles and artistic views.

I also very much like the art of Rob Ryan, Elsa Mora and Emma van Leest. And the technique of Kako Ueda and Hino Aoyama is extrem! So thin cut lines and intricate motives. I recommend the book to everyone interested in art, craft and design.
