Synopsis

1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse Remake, Restyle, Recycle, Renew by Garth Johnson

Artists and crafters have always been recyclers, but for many, it has not only become a thrifty choice, it has become a moral imperative. 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse contains a cutting edge collection of the most inventive work being made with re-used, upcycled, and already existing materials. The work in this book ranges from clever and humble personal accessories to unique and important large-scale works of art, including paper art, fashion, jewelry, housewares, interiors, and installations.

This is a photo gallery of funky and somewhat outrageous art objects made from recycled found materials in all media. Johnson (art, Coll. of the Redwoods) assembled this collection of works by established studio artists as a source of ideas for crafters. -- Library Journal, February 15, 2010

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
