Playing With Books
The Art of Upcycling, Deconstructing, & Reimagining the BookBook - 2010
In these pages, Jason Thompson has curated an extensive and artistic range of both achievable upcycled crafts made from books and book pages and an amazing gallery that contains thought-provoking and beautiful works that transform books into art.
The content encompasses a wide range of techniques and step-by-step projects that deconstruct and rebuild books and their parts into unique, upcycled objects. The book combines in equal measure bookbinding, woodworking, paper crafting, origami, and textile and decorative arts techniques, along with a healthy dose of experimentation and fun.The beautiful high-end presentation and stunning photography make this book a delightful, must-have volume for any book-loving artist or art-loving book collector.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Some of the projects in this book are really challenging and require a lot of detail work (paper cutting) and some are very simple and quick to whip up (envelopes). There is a decent selection of examples of artist's work as examples of what is possible with the craft so you don't feel limited to the projects with instructions themselves.
