Playing with Books: The Art of Upcycling, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book by Jason Thompson

In these pages, Jason Thompson has curated an extensive and artistic range of both achievable upcycled crafts made from books and book pages and an amazing gallery that contains thought-provoking and beautiful works that transform books into art.

 

The content encompasses a wide range of techniques and step-by-step projects that deconstruct and rebuild books and their parts into unique, upcycled objects. The book combines in equal measure bookbinding, woodworking, paper crafting, origami, and textile and decorative arts techniques, along with a healthy dose of experimentation and fun.The beautiful high-end presentation and stunning photography make this book a delightful, must-have volume for any book-loving artist or art-loving book collector.

This book has a few good ideas but not much you won't see in a general paper craft idea book. There are photos of book art in the end but those aren't the ones the book gives directions for. Save your money, read it for an hour free in store or peek the hard copy in the store. What is in here for ideas aren't depicted in simple directions. Wish I could return it. Luckily e version was cheaper than hardback.
