This book is a reminder that there is not an app for everything. Craft Activism is all about enduring relationships to each other, the earth, ideas, materials, community, the senses, and art. Add in gorgeous photography and you have a gem of a book!

Craft Activism is a fun book...fascinating and witty--both the writing and the photography. Gale Zucker has a wonderful eye for the absurd or the funny or the inspiring, and Joan Tapper writes with empathy and clarity and in fine style. I have enjoyed this book enormously--and I'm not even a knitter. If you ARE a knitter--this has got to be a must read; if you just like to learn about original people creating unusual crafts for a cause, again it's a must.

The new "Craft Activism" book by the wonderfully well written Joan Tapper and gifted photographer Gale Zucker will bring you back to childhood and back to the present with wonderfully presented projects for today's crafter. This inspiring book will give you "the bug" to bring out those tools that are stuffed in the back of your drawers and craft closets and start to create once again. Homemade and handmade have never been so appreciated as they are today. This book is a must for all your friends who yearn to be creative. Enjoy the gift of giving and the gift of creating a one of a kind masterpiece. I do.

Check me out at [...] and "Taste the Love".

This book really opened my eyes to what I can do with my crafts! A great idea book, as well. I never thought of making some of the projects highlighted in the book, but now I will! Great book!

I expected this book to be longer, but I was not disappointed. The content is plentiful. I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a sense of community in the craft world. I live in a rural area full of artisans, yet it is difficult to get together with them. The topics and projects in this book are thought-provoking and fun. I will be making several of the things in this book and hope to be able to meet some of the interviewees.

I adore what Ms. Tapper has done here. The format is generally activism story, then a specific craft (or two) to attempt on your own, with some takeaways and images, too. This is a fun read, useful, and inspiring. This was a library checkout for me, but now I'll buy for the home library DIY shelves.

If I ever think that I have nothing fun to do, I get this book off the shelf and look for a project that will be "green" and recyclable and then I dive into a new craft. This is one super book to have out on your coffee table, too. Well worth the price.
