''Next to wax flowers, those made of fine tissue-paper are the most elegant, and the art of forming them is capable of being carried to a high state of perfection. Unlike the art of forming wax-flowers, this may be made to give satisfaction in the hands of a mere tyro; although when executed by a skillful and practiced artist it is so charming in its various combinations that it will amply repay a patient and persevering study of its many technicalities, and a continued series of attempts at forming, any and every flower and but that comes within the reach.''
What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
