4.0 out of 5 stars Handmade Nation, 12 Feb 2010
A good book that is very appropriate in those times. Shows very enterprising women,in the States, having decided to
recycle and transform stuff to sell and using skills they learnt from their mothers, or picked on the way , found a great way
to do business without stepping on others'toes. The crafts showed range from the twee and a little weird to the simply beautiful. They experiment and share and their journeys are very heart warming. They all use the internet to meet end share and make a living, so they are not technophobes ! I enjoyed that book.

5.0 out of 5 stars fingerprint finger licking inspiring book, 12 Feb 2010
A beautifully produced book, showing a great diversity of styles and approaches to hand drawn design.
A great collection to browse and get inspired by. Images that show the glue and the scissors and
the brush marks. Letterpress and hand written words are alive and well. The visual richness of the many
materials used is wonderful and the comments accompanying each work are just enough to explain it.It is not a "how to
book"by any means. As a resource though, I'm sure it will be a joy to have around. I love this book.
