  • The first part of Cutting paper contains a brief overview of paper cutting techniques, styles, and materials, and a consideration of its place in the Froebel system of childhood education, the avant-garde, and contemporary art. The second part is a papercutting portfolio, featuring dozens of cut-paper examples from around the world including silhouettes; collages; papel picado; canivet, a card with a border cut to resemble intricate lace; monkiri, a Japanese stencil crest; and Scherenschnitte, a German-style black papercut.). Some samples are based on historical models, such as a Matisse-style gouache découpée, painted with Matisse's own palette of Linel gouaches on Arches text wove; a henna hand pattern based on paper cutting in India; a calligraphic cutting of Sultan Suleyman's "tughra," or official signature; and the famous paper "mosaick" botanicals of 18th-century artist Mrs. Mary Delany. An original photomontage by Barbara Hodgson is tipped in
