About My Books:
Papier Mache Monsters (2009, Gibbs Smith Publishers)
This is the most recent iteration of my first book, The Simple Screamer: A Guide to the Art of Papier and Cloth Mache (1984, Gibbs Smith Publishers), and its sequel, Make Something Ugly for a Change: The definitive Guide to Papier and Cloth Mache
(1999, Gibbs Smith Publisher). This is a very comprehensive book. It contains everything I've learned about paper mache over the past four decades. Like the first two books, the focus here is on making a monster while learning the techniques. Why a monster? Because you can't make a mistake. I do show how to make other projects as well.
Paper Mache Dragons:
I love dragons. You might even say that I have a dragon problem. I make other projects, but I'm always thinking of making another dragon. In fact, I'm thinking of one that I'm making right now. I made this book for people similarly afflicted. Truth is, I just couldn't fit a really detailed set of instructions for dragon making into my monster making book. This is also a stand alone book. It will teach you everything you need to know about paper and cloth mache. See sample pages below.
This book has nothing to do with paper mache. This is a very sweet, poignant children's book. While paper mache is my claim to fame, this is the book that makes me the most proud. I took two years off from my paper mache practice to get this book out of my head, where it had been for many years, and onto the pages of this book. I think it's a great book with a great message, for adults and kids alike. See some sample pages below. Listen, if you buy this book and don't like it, keep it, and I'll refund the purchase price.
