Clive Stevens owns an advertising agency specializing in business to business and pan European accounts. A founder and committee member of the Advertising Art Society of London, Clive has won two gold and four silver awards for graphic design and illustration. He has written one book on papercrafts, and produced an animated television commercial that was the first real paper sculpture animation of its kind.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-5-These books open with a general introduction to the topic and a delineation of the basic materials and needed equipment. What follows are 9 or 10 projects on double-page spreads, with simple numbered directions and clear, colorful photos of the steps and materials, and boys and girls displaying the finished products. Many of the designs are derived from multicultural sources. Decorative Painting shows how to decorate wooden spoons, jars, gift boxes, eggs, and rocks; how to use trompe l'oeil techniques; and how to make a mirror framed by a Picasso motif. Mosaics includes directions for an African mask, Egyptian necklace, and a book cover with an Aztec design. Paperfolding shows more clearly than most books of its type how to make hats, airplanes, a pinwheel, cards, a mask, and boxes. Each activity also has "Further Ideas" for other projects or enhancements. Reproducible patterns are included in all three books. Safety warnings are marked throughout with a red box and an exclamation point. Although some materials and inexpensive equipment may have to be purchased, everything is available where school supplies are sold. Similar in scope and style to the "Step-by-Step" series (Kingfisher), these new books are easier and more appealing because of their exclusive use of photos. Solid additions to the ever-popular crafts section.
