Sakura is Tatsue Shibata's third book, she has also written 'The Language of Flowers' and 'Love and Roses'. There is also a brilliant YouTube video of her work. My overall impression of this book is that it is definitely a book for parchment crafters who know the basic techiniques as there is no instruction. It is not too difficult, however, if you have a bit of experience to use the excellent detailed photographs and pattern together with a list of tools required to make the various projects.
There are patterns for cards, 3D patterns for candle holder, basket, lampshades, box and much more, all themed on the beautiful Japanese Sakura flower.

Tina Cox has designed eight lovely smaller cards for beginners to start parchment crafting. These cards are brilliant to use for any occasion and as usual you can mix and match the elements of Tina's card designs to make your own unique cards. Included in this package is the 'Beginners Technique Guide' and complete instructions plus a full size colour illustration for each card. These designs can also be used for toppers, but altogether a great package to get everyone inspired to start parchment craft.

The new Pergamano Book '25 Years' is an anniversary book which has 25 projects by 25 Pergamano teachers and enthusiasts. This is an outstanding book with projects for cards, wall decorations, fan, dreamcatcher, boxes and calyx for a tea light. There are plenty of Anniversary cards, I particularly like this one designed by Linda Williams.
There is a huge variety of projects and designs from 25 authors, definitely something for everyone.
