Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book would be the fifth volume in the craft 1,000 series–offering a nice DIY twist on this successful Graphic Design series. 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse contains the most up-to-date inventive work being made using re-used, upcycled, and already existing materials. Artists and crafters have always been recyclers, from re-using old linens in their quilts and rag rugs to using egg  cartons to make kid's toys. But for many, it has not only become a thrify choice, it has become a moral imperative. The work in this book ranges from clever and humble personal accessories to unique and important large-scale works of art. It ranges from simple crafts, to more technical applications of reuse
