Further evidence that the line between Art and Craft is vanishing and that the trend toward recycling/re-purposing material is a big part of that development. Inspirational art-making. Great material for student projects.

I've just finished reading through my copy of this wonderful book from front to back and I am sitting here absolutely stunned at the visual wonders I've just been exposed to. The presentation of each artist has just the right mix of text and photos, and the world-wide scope of the coverage is amazing. As soon as I finish writing this review I plan to email a handful of my artist friends to turn them on to this find. Kudos to Tristan Manco and the editorial staff at Thames & Hudson for hitting the bullseye and publishing this jewel!!

My grandmother originally took this out of our local library and was so busy she couldn't look at it herself, i of course flipped through it to find magnificent pieces of work the were truly inspiring. She unfortunately had to return to the library before viewing it so i bought it for her as a holiday gift. Needless to say she was thrilled.

Wow-exciting art and so refreshing to see art that is not either ridiculous (Emperor's new clothes type) or stodgy old.
When I see art that makes me want to get up and make something I know it is good.
I will be buying this (got it at the library to read) and sending it to young artists in my family.
