Review Quotes




"This is an Official Rave, a fan letter! Esther K. Smith's classic, How to Make Books, has been on my shelf since 2007. Simply put, it's one of the best in its category, book making. I predict that her newest, Making Books with Kids, will join the ranks at that same high level." - Judi Kauffman, Scrapbooking.com Magazine
