Titling this book an encyclopedia is somewhat misleading, since it is not a reference book in dictionary format. It is instead a survey guide in two parts: techniques, consisting of the basic procedures of origami, paper sculpture, papier-mache, papermaking, and quilling; and themes, consisting of an exhibit of works by artists in paper. The techniques section is well illustrated with line drawings and photographs and includes a few step-by-step projects. The theme section has color photographs of finished works with descriptive annotations. This is a much more colorful book than most papercraft books and is an excellent source of ideas.
