Overflowing with ideas and insider technique tips, Rice and friends present us with bountiful inspiration in this enthusiastic, well-illustrated book. It's not just a must-read but a must-OWN if you're involved with paper and fiber arts. The tip about silk screen ink (for art on fabric) saved me weeks of reinventing the wheel, and that's just one very small note in a book chock FULL of fabulous ideas and projects. Thank you, Rice!
This book is delightfully full of creative uses of rubber stamps by talented artisans in many mediums. The author has explained every project in easy-to-understand terms. Projects are separated into sections, such as "for the home," which makes it easy to select a project, and each section has a well-written introduction by the author. I didn't find one project I didn't like or wouldn't want to reproduce. The photography is wonderful! Any little petty glitches, which you'll find in any book, are easily overlooked because of the innovative subject matter and the masterful photos. (Even the revered "Chicago Manual of Style" has typos!) If you want something a little different, this is the book I recommend. It's worth every penny I spent on it, and I look forward to more great books by the author!
I have taken classes from Rice' and every class has taught me something new and inspired me creatively. I'm an experienced editor and agree better proof reading was needed but her examples and information and her association with other artists included in the book are the most important reason for buying it. If her name is on a book, buy it. She has a new book coming out in October 2004 and I am anxious to buy it too.
This Instructional Project Book offers wonderful projects by today's renowned top artists in stamping, clay, collage, etc. However typographical errors distract from the step-by-step instructions.Xyron is one of the most "top of mind" brands in the Arts and Crafts industry, but was referred to as Zyron several times throughout the book. I noticed misspelled words such as Dall instead of Doll and poor sentence structure.I do not blame the author, but the Publishing House for proofreading errors. This shows lack of knowledge and details for the art form in which they are representing.When I buy a book of this price point and with step-by-step instructions I expect top-notch editing!!!!
I received this book from .com today and, in a word, it is SUPERB! Trust me when I say I have shelves full of craft books, but this one is hands down the best. It features a wide variety of projects to appeal to all tastes, with concise instructions for all skill levels. I didn't find one project that didn't interest me (a rarity), so applaud the selection, and the directions make each and every one of them doable for me. Thanks much (I'm hoping there will be a Book II!) for this wonderful volume. I wish you much success.
With projects for the beginner to the master, this inspiring book invites every reader to jump right in! The featured artists present new and interesting projects that are wearable (remember those great "travelling shoes" in Somerset Studio by Linda Woods?!), display-able, memorable--something for you, your home, your heart, your closet. There is something fun or challenging for everyone, and the directions and pictures are great. Be warned: work will have to wait once you get this book! Rice Freeman-Zachary's fun, encouraging style will grab you!
