Idiot's Illustrated is an illustration-intensive extension of the core The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" series. The goal of the series is to cover how-to topics in select categories that rely heavily on photography and line art to show readers what to do and how to do it, and to cover these topics in the simplest, most visual way possible. More than just our regular series book with a few more figures thrown in, this extension will be driven by its visual components. Text will complement the figures, not the other way around. The series will focus on topics that are more specific than those covered in our standard series. The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Scrapbooking Illustrated, Second Edition, is the perfect book to kick off this series extension. Scrapbooking is gaining in popularity -- witness the growing Scrapbooking aisles in hobby/crafts shops and chains, and several magazines, both in print and online. There are almost 200,000 scrapbooking Web pages, including a number of bulletin boards and mailing lists. The audience is there, and the increased visuals in the new edition will please both new scrapbookers and those who are more experienced in the craft.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -260) and index.
