As a medium for creative play, paper is inexpensive, easily worked, and capable of effects ranging from the simple and easily achieved to the most skilful and ambitious. It lends itself altogether exceptionally to the liberation and the stimulus of the creative faculty, particularly in young people.
The aim of the book, as of succeeding volumes in the series, is to enable the learner to regain his creative faculties: ridding himself of pre-established concepts and standards, he will rediscover the delight in tools and materials, and the inventiveness to which they can lead.
The author, himself a teacher of thirty years' experience, has illustrated his book with more than 270 examples reproduced from work by young boys and girls, and by adults and students at teachers' training courses. His intention, admirably carried out, has been to provide sources of stimulation, rather than models to be slavishly copied.
