These covers are actually pretty cool looking and got me wondering– how does someone actually make papercuts? I checked out some of the books we have in the Library on paper cutting and let me tell you, you need some serious scissor skills. However, they aren’t as complicated as you might think. Part of the trick of papercutting is folding the paper to make more than one cut at a time. There are also different cutting tools you can use to create more detailed cuts.
Here are some of the most recent Teen novels that feature papercuts on their covers, click on the cover or the title link to find more information about the book:
Check out all the most recent news about teen books that are being made into movies:
Unwind, a compelling and issue heavy novel by Neal Shusterman, has been optioned by Constantin Films to be adapted into a movie, according to the “Hollywood Crush” blog on MTV.com. Unwind is a dystopian, sci-fi novel set in a future where teens can be unwound, or be taken apart and have their organs harvested, if they don’t fit into society’s norms.
Over a year ago, Universal announced that it was going to make Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone into a movie. Last month, the studio announced that they were going to push forward and now have a producer for the movie, according to Deadline.com. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a fantasy novel that centers on Karou, a seemingly normal teen except that she was raised by a family of Chimaera. With questions about how she came to be a human raised by demons, Karou gets swept up in a world where a dangerous war is being waged between angels and demons.
If you are a huge fan of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy, then you should be happy with the news that writer Daniel Water’s has finished the script for the movie! (according to Hollywood Crush) I am definitely looking forward to seeing who is cast in the movie, as I am a huge fan of the book series. The first book in the series, Vampire Academy, introduces us to Rose and Lissa. Lissa is a vampire of royal blood and Rose is the dhampir (part human, part vampire) who is bonded to protect her. Together they attend St. Vladimir’s Academy, where they have recently returned after running away, and where they will both be trained for life outside the school’s walls.
