This is a great book of simple projects that use old books and make them into new and lovely things! It has very clear instructions and I felt I could do most of these projects. Particularly love the cascading mobile on front cover, and a little bird house made with children's books...Wonderful stuff!

This book is full of inspiring ideas and they are all artistic but simple enough that you can make them at home...just don't tell your granny that you are destroying old books!!

Very little inspiring content in this book. Most of the items I wouldn't make eg a lamp stand made out of a pile of unchanged books. Might as well just place a lamp on a pile of books!
Lampshades covered with book pages, not even pictures! Isn't that a fire risk? Just as well no one will ever bother making them.
As for the pack of cards inside a book.. neither useful nor art.
Save your money, go onto pinterest for better ideas (and it's free).

Not what I need really. I wanted easier things to do with books as I work in a school. KS3. I have kept it as it is going to cost too much to send it back

I have used most of the patterns in the book. The patterns were very clear to understand. I would recommend to friends.
