I mostly agree with the other reviewer said...BUT... I did see that Alison "Highly recommended..." this book in her newest (2007-2008) catalog, so I took a chance. (With a MUCH lower price here.) Ideas are GREAT, techniques are fair, patterns are fuzzy and not actual size. I'm an advanced cutter & I WILL use this book....but it will take some simple doctoring, to make them look as clean and sharp as the pictures in the book. After looking through the book (AND not remembering what I'd paid), I told myself it was worth a MAXIMUM of $15.00, for idea & pattern value. I paid less than that, so I'm satisfied. I give it a 4 and know that a beginner could benefit with the good ideas & simple patterns.

This book did not provide the technique as suggested by the title. However, I did get some good ideas from the photos and patterns.

This book has some attractive patterns, so, if you're just looking for patterns to blindly copy, it is probably fine. Unfortunately, however, it bills itself as offering tips and techniques -- which are very sketchy at best -- and the Resources don't even include Papercuttings By Alison, which is where 99% of US papercutters purchase their supplies. You would HAVE to own at least one other papercutting book to be able to use this -- which is a darned shame, since it would have been very simple for the author to mention the basic things every papercutter knows about using paper, scissors, knives, etc. If you're going to NAME your book Techniques, you really ought to include as much information as possible. Conversely, if she'd named her book Patterns, it would have been fine. I just wouldn't want anyone to think that this is a standalone book on the subject ... It is a book of patterns, with a few tips included.
