5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun and inspiring! 4 Nov 2011
By jammy
Yet another great book from the mind of Keri Smith! The Guerilla Art Kit is beautifully laid out book full of bold and childlike illustrations and has a great spiral binding making looking through it very easy!

The book is all about connecting and leaving your mark on the enviroment using a variety of eco-friendly techniques and includes many imaginative projects to try: like Knitted tags, scavenger hunts, wish trees, and creating minature enviroments along with many many more!

I would deffinetly recommend this book for keri smith fans and for people who need to get their creative juices flowing! on the down side it is a little smaller than I expected but still a great little treasure! (the disclaimer also stresses about the responsibility you must have as some projects in the book may be considered as graffiti or vandalism).

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, buy you may need to be Banksy...? 26 Mar 2012
By Brian
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVED 'Wreck This Journal'! It was enormous fun and taught me a lot about how to be creative and - importantly - the many different guises creativity can take.

'The Guerilla Art Kit' is a beautifully-produced book (with Ms. Smith's signature style of graphics), including being spiral bound which is (a) practical and (b) gives it the feel of a manual, which is lovely. The suggestions in the book are amazing, but I do question whether in the CCTV-obsessed UK we could carry out a lot of Ms. Smith's activities without being arrested?! (Ms Smith does discuss vandalism and CCTV in the book, so she cannot be accused of being irresponsible.)

That said, again it is a brilliant tool to fuel your creativity and look at things from a different perspective. I am not an artsy type, but I most defintely am an admirer or Ms. Smith's brand of anarchic art!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration 6 Aug 2009
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This book (which is beautifully produced with a really effective spiral binding- why aren't all books you want to leave open at a page like this) is a set of playful, cheeky and inspiring art projects. They range from the straightforward to the more involved but they all come with clear instructions and they all will make you think. You will pick up this book at a random page, leaf through it and then want to go out and try something as soon as you put the book down. It is quite edgy in that does suggest making public art but it does stress a responsible attitude to working this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Again! 28 Mar 2014
By Bambi
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Enables children to be children and be creative without being forced. It lets them think independently and also enables them to discuss their thoughts and ideas. This book is also good for adults who have the child still inside them.
