I’m one of those closeted adults who enjoys a good children’s product, in this case Klutz’s brilliant Paper Fashions series of activity books. Art directed by April Chorba, these books burst with ideas, and are beautifully conceived and designed, with thorough instructions and inspirational blurbs. Despite including templates, the books encourage maximum elaboration on the fundamental ingredients, and provide gorgeous papers, ribbons, sequins and beads, jeweled stickers, and tiny hangers. Fun!
