Promotional Information

"Oh my word! This book is AMAZING!!! I talked to New York based artist Andrea D'Aquino on my podcast earlier this year when she was still working on "Once Upon A Piece of Paper". Well, it's officially out in the world and it is SO GOOD. Brilliant words of wisdom, tips and tricks for making, and actual step-by-step demos. Oh, and there's more... a second book filled with paper for you to USE for your own collages. Seriously. So good." The Jealous Curator "At UPPERCASE magaine, we have a soft spot for illustrator Andrea D'Aquino's collages--we've featured her twice on past covers and she's a regular contributor in illustrating the Beginnings column. Andrea's new book invites you to enter a beautiful, papery world-and learn how to create your own! The book comes with 50 two-sided sheets of printed and patterned paper to spark your own collages and visual stories, once upon a piece of paper." -- Janine VanGool UPPERCASE
