With a focus on simple, elegant projects, the The Art of Paper Quilling offers paper crafters a complete technique guide along with step-by-step project ideas for making beautiful framed pieces, cards, gifts, and more. The designs are all built upon simple rolled coils of paper that when grouped together, form intricate flowers, graceful butterflies, and delicate scrollwork. Quilled designs can be framed or used to embellish greeting cards, books and journals, and many types of simple paper structures. Claire Sun-ok Choi is an expert paper artist who has influenced the revival of this fanciful art form with her inspiring exhibits and internationally known books./div
Felice Sabatini is just a mechanic, working on Italian aircraft in China. He isn’t looking for trouble, much less interested in getting caught up a in a conspiracy against China, Japan, and Germany.
Unfortunately for him, that’s exactly what happens.
Three different factions are after an ancient artifact and the mystical power it controls. Power that, if it falls into the wrong hands, could end up destroying the very world as we know it.
Felice knows nothing of immortals, fox women, ninjas or dragons, never mind the Ministry of Storms. He is a rational man, after all. But before this journey is over he will be called upon to face all of that, never mind the power of ancient Chinese magic and a menace from Beyond Time.
From the crowded streets of Shanghai to the empty stretches of the Desert of Inescapable Death, Ministry of Thunder is an explosive mix of Oriental Fantasy and New Pulp.
