This is a great book for bored children during the summer or any school breaks that come up. It goes through the history of papermaking the supplies needed and some different techniques for papermaking. This it has 20 plus pages of different things to make with paper for gifts or yourself. The one thing that most tutorial type books lack which this one does not is nice colorful step by step pictures. They did a great job on making sure the directions were clearly defined. I would recommend this for all ages. Younger ones will obviously need assistance but like I said a great rainy day summer project.

*Most supplies needed you can find at home depending on the technique used.
