Library Journal Review

Coauthors Pester and Bruns believe in the power of handcraft-so much that they've built their careers around encouraging people to take time to create. The first of their books available in English presents 52 projects, one for each week of the year, intended to encourage experimentation with new techniques and materials and to take advantage of what each season has to offer. Each design starts with a brief overview of the difficulty level, supplies needed, and time required-allowing crafters to select a project that suits their interest and their schedule. The aesthetic is fresh and contemporary, with lots of bright colors and modern art-inspired style. Numerous techniques are covered, including paper craft, painting, crochet, embroidery, weaving, origami, and sewing, making this a veritable buffet of ideas. However, this means that no one technique is covered in depth, so if your interest is piqued by a printmaking project, you'll need to go elsewhere for further information. An overview of basic knitting, crochet, and embroidery skills is provided, but some knowledge of crafting basics (including sewing) is assumed. VERDICT Crafters with varied interests, or beginners who seeking their niche and want to try out a lot of different techniques, will gain the most from this collection. © Copyright 2016.
