Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Most of the patterns fall in the “Oh, how cute” category, but there are several with guy appeal. Get this book! Kids, teens, and adults will all want to borrow it.”- The yayayas

“Whether you’ve dedicated an entire room in your house to “crafting” or break out in hives at the mere mention of gimp, it’s hard to deny the weirdly winsome appeal of Aranzi Aronzo’s DIY books”.- Popcultureshock

Meet the Author

Aranzi Aronzo claim to be a Mexican-Japanese man and Norwegian Vietnamese-Indian man, working at securities firms and playing the tambourine full-time. What we do know about them, however, is that they are actually two sisters--Kinuyo Saito and Yoko Yomura--who create mischief and fun through high-cute (as in "high art") crafts and comics.

Besides having created and maintained a multi-million dollar independent enterprise of "Japanese cute" materials, stories, home accessories, furniture, dolls, and even alcohols, Aranzi Aronzo have also been responsible for the mascot design of the Aichi World Expo 2005.
