Utterly cool collection of simple stationery projects,
This review is from: Self-Made Stationery: Handmade Goods Designed for Me (Paperback)
I love this book - it is full of amazingly simple ideas to make your own stationery using ordinary, everyday things, as well as recycled & found things. There are lots of projects that are cool at their most basic level but also ripe for adaptation by anyone with an ounce of artistic flair.
You don't need to be skilled with a paintbrush, or a sewing machine, or follow complex origami folds to succeed with this book: these are everyday projects for everyday people (who love stationery). Learn how to make easy notebooks, travel journals, wallets, organisers, gift bags, noticeboards, bookmarks and more. You'll be amazed you never thought of these things before.
The author has a friendly, personal style - and the occasional stilted translation just adds to this book's quirky charm. The projects themselves are unbeatable in terms of ingenuity and are easy to follow.
