Too many craft books?


NEVER! Seems every time I turn around there's a new crop of crafty compendiums. But who's complaining? I'm long overdue in promoting Tease: 50 Inspired T-Shirt Transformations by Superstars of Art, Craft and Design, especially since little ol' moi has a project in it (see page 104). Also included are projects by most of the gals from our Austin Craft Mafia, Todd Oldham and Amy Sedaris. Get thee a copy! Next up are two books that I fully endorse with commentary on the back cover and everything: The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts by Leah Kramer of Craftster.org fame and AlternaCrafts by my good buddy, Jessica Vitkus. Jessica really knows her crafty stuff, having worked alongside Martha Stewart and produced shows for MTV and The Style Network. What more can I say? Each book is truly unique in its own right and crammed with enough projects to keep you crafting on and on and on....
