No one wraps anything better than the Japanese, and this book is an incredible inspiration for anyone who wants to learn their secrets. Including schematics for paper folding, the use of colored tape and string, envelopes, paper bags, maps, twine and lace, the book illustrates literally hundreds of different wrapping styles with clear, easy-to-follow photos. Many designs have a freestyle exuberance, while others are remarkably elegant, including methods of pleating paper, folding together varied colors and textures, creating designs with tape, dried botanicals, herbs, leaves and cloth. There are even some great approaches to the most boring wrapping problem ever: wrapping a wine bottle. A book full of splendid ideas.
