Praise for The Black Apple’s Paper Doll Primer:
“This book is packed full of loveliness—stunning paper dolls, creative paper projects, even a stellar toy theater, all with Emily's unique blend of irreverent sweetness. Please be seated with smelling salts nearby: Fainting might occur. It's that good.”
--Amy Karol, author of Bend-the-Rules Sewing and Bend-the-Rules with Fabric

“A trove of great imagination, and many fine diversions.”
--Rob Kalin, founder of Etsy.com

“It's like getting to play with the characters of Emily's paintings and step a little closer into their world.”
--Jenny Hart, author of Sublime Stitching and Embroidered Effects

Praise for Emily Martin:
“…sweet and appealing…”
--Rob Walker for The New York Times Magazine

The world of Emily Martin is enchanting, exquisite, and ethereal. Behind the soft hues and the peaches-and-cream palette, one can see a lively and fertile mind at work. An aching and mysterious sweetness blends with beguiling touches of the enigmatic and the peculiar, and the results are often remarkably sublime.”
--Richard Sala, author of Peculia, Delphine, and Cat Burglar Black

“The Black Apple is the perfect place to turn to for a little taste of culture.”
--Alternative Press magazine
