Papercut This Book

In Papercut This Book, I share my 
passion for the intricate art of papercutting.

 

Starting with an introduction to basic papercutting techniques, I show you how to create your own beautiful paper wildlife scenes.

Cutting templates are included along with high-quality art paper in a variety of colours – all you need is a scalpel and a cutting board.

 

The projects vary in complexity, making this book perfect both for beginners and for those wanting to develop their skills further.

The Greatest

Speakeasies in

New York City

Down dark alleys, hidden behind boarded-up shops or anonymous doors, are New York’s biggest secrets: the raucous, cocktail-swigging speakeasies that are still in operation 80 years after Prohibition ended. 

 

Some are original – relics from the Jazz Age, restored to their former glory – whilst others have meticulously recreated the Prohibition era with antique fittings, gin in teacups, and a Boardwalk Empire aesthetic of bartenders in waistcoats mixing cocktails in subterranean pleasure palaces. 

As it's an e-book, it can be easily referred to on smartphone or tablet whilst you’re out and about.

 

So if you want a shortcut to living like a local in New York, this book will direct you to those great secret bars with the killer cocktails.
