I bought both of Marshall's pop-up bouquet books at the same time and this one, Paper blossoms, Butterflies & Birds is the best of the two books. While this book does not equal the intricacies found in Robert Sabuda's pop-up books, it is a beautiful and unique concept. The best floral pop-ups of the four bouquets in this book are the ones with the butterfly and the other with the hummingbird. I plan to try one of them out on my dining room table in hopes my young and agile cat does not decide to investigate! If you are a pop-up book fan, then I recommend adding this book to your collection.
This book arrived damaged because a rubber band was placed along the binding, I have no idea why this was done. I have another book by Ray Marshall that is beautiful, Paper Blossoms. In this book there are only 4 displays and the only bird, that I found, was on the cover. Only one flower arrangement has butterflies.
It's still pretty, but definitely not as fancy and beautiful as the previous one. I bought the previous book and everyone loves it. Bought another for mother in law. This one is okay. There are something wrong with the flower design, even with the color, also the tulips on the first page is too simple.
I am such a big fan of Ray Marshall's pop-up wizardy! This is my first purchase of "Paper Blossoms, Butterflies and Birds."Over the past 3 years, I have purchased 20 of Ray's "Paper Blossoms" A Book of Beautiful Bouquets to give as gifts for so many occasions. Birthdays, Housewarming Gifts, Bridal Showers, Hospital Stays, and even as "perpetual" memorial gifts. A Pop-up Coffee Table Book is a beautiful and unique gift that delights all the senses
Beautiful books with pop up flowers that are just lovely to look at. These were bought for my 91 year old mother who had Alzheimers. In her last days, she enjoyed looking at this book, along with another of this same kind of book.
I sent this to my aunt, who is in an assisted living facility. It was a HUGE hit with everyone! She uses it on her mantle as an easy way to have flowers without the care, which is now hard for her. The pop-ups are beautiful.
I bought 3 of these as gifts and the recipients were thrilled and delighted, so was I. I will probably buy more for other people, they are beautiful and fabulous. I was concerned about damage in shipping but they were very well packed, arrived on time without damage. I recommend these for yourself or as gifts, they are gorgeous.
Gave as a gift. I do not think she liked it. I love the book. It is hard to give a daughter in-law anything. Nothing is good enough.
