Paper Illuminated

A candle, a light bulb, or natural daylight illuminating a translucent sheet of paper can create surprises by casting a shadow through holes onto another surface, illuminating a subtle pattern in the paper, or showing off a batiked design. As the popularity of handmade paper grows, this unique book takes the paper crafter beyond stationery, cards, and journals to innovative designs for using colored and textured paper to make striking three-dimensional home furnishings: luminaria, lanterns, room divider screens, sconces, lampshades, nightlights, window shades, and more.

This book is out of print, but you can still find copies on Amazon or at your local library.
