Thanks to this extraordinary crafting anthology we can experience the magic of stories and fairytales by recreating and reinterpreting the picture book. An overview outlines a variety of structures and techniques, from simple collage to glueing. But above all, these highly visual pages offer ideas and inspiration, with talented artists presenting lovingly designed story spreads and covers. Take a fantasy holiday via a travel booklet fashioned from vintage, nostalgic postcards. Follow The Queen of Tarts in a story that unfolds in a miniature puppet theatre motif. And two different artists offer their revised versions of the old classic, "The Princess and the Pea".
