silhouette art - book review
When Vana Chupp of Le Papier Studio asked me if I'd like to review her book I jumped at the chance. I love her work, so getting an early peek of her first publication was a real treat. We just recently met via twitter and I have no idea how I hadn't come across her web site sooner. I love her bright and simple style.
The first thing that struck me when I saw Silhouette Art, was that it wasn't just a collection of project ideas and tutorials. It's more of a kit that has a book and pad of assorted paper and illustrations. It's easy to select a project idea and start working on it right away.
This book would make a wonderful gift for anyone that is interested in creating DIY silhouette projects. The instructions in the book are very clear and simple enough for beginners to take on. I've already taken the profile photos of all four of us and am planning on framing them. The only thing is that my weird curly hair looks odd as a silhouette—I'll have to figure that one out.
Just one more thing... As someone that enjoys good printing when I see it, I have to say that there is no surprise that Chronicle Books did another great job with the printing of this piece. It really looks great and all the photos and quality of paper is excellent.
Here are all the links where you can learn more about Vana and her work:

Have a great weekend everyone!
