The first chapter; "Getting Started: Fold, Mutilate, Staple & Spindle", has all the information the reader needs in order to prepare and create all the crafts, explains each technique, and presents all the tools that are required.
The second chapter; "Projects to play with: Novel Ideas for Artists and Bibliophiles", has all the projects, with detailed instructions and useful photographs, of both the finished products and the various stages of the projects. Sadly, the projects in this book are without the necessary templates. There are collage, folding, beading, jewellery making, rolling, cutting and shaping projects, that are fun and easy to make. It may seem that 28 projects are not that many, but there are many variations for each project. The projects include, cards, a book bag, a business card holder, necklaces and earrings, flowers, wrapping ideas, a book clock, coasters and ornaments to mention just a few.
The third chapter; "Gallery: Reimaging the Book", presents the work of many artists who work with books and create amazing art.
I love books and crafting, so I was delighted to get this book and I already made some of the projects. However, if you are reluctant to destroy books, in order to make these crafts, most ideas work just as well with unwanted catalogues, magazines, newspapers and any kind of paper you have available.
Unfortunately, there are no templates, which means you have to spend a little longer making some of the pieces.
