Description

Artist Katrina Rodabaugh shares her artistic training and up-cycling sensibility in this unique and inspired book, The Paper Playhouse. With simple techniques including sculpture, printmaking, bookbinding, collage, and even ideas for public art, families work through step-by-step instructions while using imagination and budding aesthetics. This book goes beyond the typical paper craft project to include contemporary design references like Mid-Century Modern dollhouses, VW buses, paper monsters, costumes and masks, and the classic lemonade stand--all made with unique style and flair! Focused around surprising and easily accessibly materials like shipping boxes, shoeboxes, junk mail envelopes, newspapers, maps, found books, and other paper ephemera, and with stunning photography by Leslie Sophia Lindell, The Paper Playhouse has 22 projects aimed at inspiring children to create amazing paper crafts. A beautiful gallery provides further project inspirations from Lisa Congdon, Maya Donenfeld, Heather Smith Jones, Courtney Cerutti, Gracia Haby, Mati Rose McDonough, and many more!
