I should be breezing through instructions, paying no attention whatsoever to the print--good book design makes that happen. Even some of the illustrations could stand to be beefed up a little, with heavier lines and more contrast.
I may end up scanning pages of projects I'll be working on, and adjusting the size, color, and weight of the type. Haven't ever adapted text with Optical Character Recognition, but this seems like a good time to experiment.
The photography is beautiful, and the projects are great. I hope the author had a small run done this first time around, so she can have a new edition printed that is fun to read and use.
If, like me, you are so pleased with Lisa Occhipinti's designs that you HAVE to learn how to make them, just be forewarned and have a plan for dealing with the fine print, so to speak. Great recycled art is worth some extra work - but this is more of a challenge than I bargained for.
I hope they improve the type in the next edition. I'd love to buy it.
I think I may have been first in line with my nose pressed against the door....
The projects are creatively stepped out, and range from simple enough, to more challenging things. I simply adore this book. It is worth every single cent!
We have taken on some of the projects outlined in the book with great success. Anyone with basic craft talents and patience can create a new item for there home/office that is unique and nostalgic.
Highly recommend the book.

I love the idea of re purposing old books. An old elementary school shut down and years later they cleaned the place out and gave the books away. Read morePublished 5 months ago by heather young
