I saw this book years ago and found it again and glad it's still around.

Photocraft features fresh, inventive ways to display your photographs. I was inundated with photo storage boxes and was seeking a creative way to display cherished images when a friend gave me this book. Most of the projects are relatively simple and are accompanied with easy to follow instructions. I needed a quick fix wall treatment in my entranceway and borrowed an idea from page 100: using old CD cases, I created my own rotating photo gallery (FYI: I found that poster tabs keep the light weight plastic in place).

I've found this book to be an invaluable resource for both displaying photos and making personalized gifts.

What a wonderful addition to my burgeoning craft-book library! This book is visually engaging and can serve as a creative inspiration to novice crafters and seasoned ones alike. 'Photocraft' engages the imagination while providing practical instruction as to how to manipulate all types of images artisically. A great find!

This book has some GREAT ideas for using those stored photographs! We've already gone through several boxes and made a really cool lampshade; a collage; and jewelry! The book has creative gift ideas, which will be cherished by the recipient. Fun projects for the whole family!

Many of the projects are pretty advanced, but there are some great ideas, and I always appreciate craft books that have sections on materials and step-by step instructions.

There are not many books that review photo projects. I know-- I've looked. The few that are out there seem to show a variety of ways to create what looks like cheap results with your precious memories. Photocraft, however, is a beautifully-constructed book filled with resources and ideas for photo projects that achieve stunning results. I don't know of anything else like it on the market and I highly recommend it. Use it to not only do the projects it details, but also as a springboard for other creative ideas!

Great inspirational book. I have been taking pictures since I bought it. Haven't tried any of the projects in the book, but have came up with my own and now know so much more about things like photo paper, adhesives, etc. I do plan to try a project soon!

I tore the advertisement for this book out of a magazine 8 years ago and hung onto it. One day I would buy it and make marvelous things with all my pictures. When it arrived in the mail, I held my breath. To my dismay, I found unless you have tons of time on your hands, you won't be making "cool things" with your pictures. It was much more involved and complicated than I thought it would be. I was thoroughly disappointed. Maybe when I retire....
