I was just now rudely interrupted in my quiet reflexions by my very loud and very obnoxious doorbell, but Oh Joy: it was the mailman coming to deliver a couple of packages from BookDepository. I received Paper Cutting: Contemporary Artists, Timeless Craft compiled by Laura Heyenga, a GORGEOUS book that I will no doubt enjoy perusing for many years to come. I rarely purchase books from the “suggestions” section, but when I was getting this one from BD, there was a suggestion for The Gift by Carol Ann Duffy and Rob Ryan, the latter being one of the 26 artists featured in PC:CA,TC who also wrote the intro to that book. I don’t even want to leaf through that one yet, so I can keep the images as a surprise when I read the story, which is about a girl’s journey through life.
