Ed Emberleys Drawing Book Trucks & Train by Ed Emberley
Ed Emberleys Drawing Book Trucks & Train

christi, May 20, 2007

I remember Ed Emberley's books from my childhood in the 70's, so I bought Trucks and Trains for my son. Not only did he love being able to finally draw trains (he's just four and obsessed with trains), he learned so much about how to approach drawing objects. Mr. Emberley teaches kids to build upon basic shapes to create engines, stations and semi-trucks. It's fun to follow along and see your drawing go from triangles and squares to actual vehicles and other transportation. Ed Emberley uses this same approach in his other books, and there's definitely one your child will love.

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Peace Like a River

christi, May 8, 2007

Easily one of the best books I've ever read. Leif Enger turns a tale by a campfire. Take this book along to your cabin in the woods and really enjoy your stay this time.

Generation T: 108 Ways To Transform a T-Shirt by Megan Nicolay
Generation T: 108 Ways To Transform a T-Shirt

christi, May 2, 2007

There are quite a few of these transform your tee books out right now, but this is by far the best. I love this book and the designs are actually cool - not just a can do. Some of them work for kids tees, too, which makes this a double dip for moms and dads.

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

christi, February 9, 2007

These long, dreary, depressing nights deserve a book as dark as Wicked. Forget what you think you know and let Mr. Maguire take the reigns. The writing is phenomenal, the story deep as a well. Flip on the reading light, put on your fuzzy slippers and escape til it's warm again. Think of it as Harry Potter for grown-ups.

Home Screen Printing Workshop: Do-It-Yourself Techniques, Design Ideas, and Tips for Graphic Prints by Paul Thimou
Home Screen Printing Workshop: Do-It-Yourself Techniques, Design Ideas, and Tips for Graphic Prints

christi, December 27, 2006

This book comes out right on time. Crafts are blowing up at the same time t-shirts are all the rage. What a great way to explore this medium. If you can screenprint, you can make anything from wall art to t-shirts to Christmas cards. Youcan get all kinds of materials online, so this book is a great start to a host of projects and possibly a home-based business.
