    1. Minus one star for the poor and confusing set up of the book instead of including information materials used, methods, et cetera about each project with the photo, said information is confined to a tiny index at the back of the book, making reading up on the projects way trouble than it s worth I m also perplexed as to what guidelines were in place for the reuse, remake, restyle, recycle, renew aspect many pieces were obviously created from brand new materials purchased explicitly for these pie [...]


    2. This was about a 3.5 rating There are some very clever and amazing crafty things pictured in the book but I was stymied by some book layout issues The premise of this all photos book is to present items remade from something used for another purpose previously, in some manner remade, restyled, recycled or renewed The book meets the need of the newish upcycling movement.The number 1000 in the book s title is misleading since there are definite repeats, but I guess the author was aiming for a roun [...]


    3. Written by my friend Garth Johnson and including several of my one of a kind handspun yarns, 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse is a reduce reuse recycle ers dream Page after page of art and craft by some of the most, well, creative folks in Humboldt County, California, this coffee table tome will inspire the re maker in you to turn discards into useful and beautiful items But don t think you ll get instructions or how to s this book is strictly a photographic compendium of inspiration only you ll ha [...]


    4. Generally, I love Quarry books, as they usually always represent the utmost quality in both content as well as design and layout, and are printed on gorgeous, glossy paper This is my first time reading a volume of their 1000 Something series over, this is the first time I have read one of their books in electronic format ebook on Hoopla as opposed to Kindle So right up front, I have to confess that I believe the bulk of my complaints are related to the fact that I was not reading a print copy I [...]


    5. I have long since forgotten why I picked up this book, but I m sure glad I didn t buy it Some items look to be made from fully brand new materials, so I question the strictness of the definition of reuse, remake, restyle, recycle, renew The concept of Man Crafts sharing pages with Geek stuff is laughably outdated thinly veiled misogyny The vision of the book was jumbly, far too many of the crafts depended on a collage of garbage aesthetic, none of the photos are big enough to show enough details [...]


    6. I m a big upcycling fan and expected this book to be chuck filled with was to reuse items Instead I found it was just full of pictures of things people have made with no description as to how just the pictures of the item and the name of the creator I cannot imagine a practical use for owning this book I think the person who complied this book was a little too focused of quantity and not focused enough on quality.


    7. Hey, you know the point of making a book of ideas for creative reuse Actually including the ideas How about when you put pictures of 1000 different upcycled projects, you actually tell us what is being upcycled, rather than making us flip continuously back and forth to an appendix Waste of valuable reading time.


    8. Fun to look at, but really you could get the same effect browsing through Etsy In fact, a lot of the artists in this book are on Etsy I did really like the Art section that showed some interesting stuff.


    9. Picked up this gorgeous, inspiring art book at the public library sale for just 1 Pretty fitting, I think.


    10. This is actually just a book of photographs of projects Some of them are very, very cool, and there is a directory of contributors in the back in case you really liked something and wanted to try and find it Some of the artists had Etsy shops There is also a short list of blogs and websites and another list for recycle centers for alternative art materials Hopefully, if you like one of the projects enough you can either figure out where to buy it or make it yourself.

HCPL Nonfiction 745.5 JohArtists 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, interi [...]


    12. This book caught my eye because of the interesting cover Also, I m a big fan of browsing on sites like Etsy to see creative ways that people have reused everyday items.I finished the book in one sitting Besides the 2 page introduction, there weren t a lot of words in this book The 1000 images are presented along with the name of the creator and where they are from The images are organized into 6 chapters though the author admits many of the items overlap categories Paper, Collage, Assemblage Cou [...]


    13. This amazing collection of creative ways to reuse old stuff was a real kick to my creative impulses The author arranges the creations in groups by material or theme, such as Paper, Collage Assemblage and Geek Craft Man Craft, though there are some artists who end up in each category for one reason or another The arrangements on the pages are very clever and works of art in themselves, sometimes for color, sometimes for shapes Of course, there are the crazy things like a tin foil dress and spiky [...]


    14. This is NOT a how to book, so you need some knowledge of materials and methods if you want to make any of the projects shown, or refer to instructions elsewhere That said, this book is simply amazing It ranges from simple coasters made of album covers to elaborate art pieces requiring metalworking skills and everything in between It features sections on paper crafting, couture and soft goods, jewelry and adornments, geek craft and man craft , housewares and furnishings, and art and installations [...]


    15. Plenty of ideas as described in the title though not exactly 1000 since there are similar items that are duplicates While the projects certainly involved DIY for the maker, don t expect this to be a DIY book with instructions or material listings This is purely a look book of sorts for inspiration Good for people who might like the look at DIY, but not necessarily interested in doing it themselves each photo does list the maker, and their company , or for those already who have some DIY skills i [...]


    16. Good for inspiration, browse through if you find yourself struggling to see things in new ways Some of the 1000 ideas are things we ve seen before do we really need typewriter key jewelry , but some are actually innovative The lack of description is frustratingterials are listed in the index in the back, but it should not have unduly influenced design if that information were included on the page with the pictures, and would have been much helpful, as would some notes on technique However, as [...]


    17. I picked this book up from the library alright I made the order it and then picked it up and I really liked it Most recycling other stuff for crafts books give detailed instructions on how the project can be redone I don t always like that because it takes away from the creative process This book has relatively no words in it at all Page after page of images with the artist s name and country equals 1000 IDEAS, not 1000 projects you should copy Bravo.


    18. I was very disappointed with this book The title was exactly what the book was ideas for creative reuse but unfortunately there were no descriptions on materials or methods used This pic is just 1000 pictures of albeit fantastic Creative reuse I would reccomend this to experienced mixed media artists and craftsters, but not to anyone who wants to learn how to actually do this type of art.


    19. What great book So artistically amazing I got so many great ideas from it I would definitely recommend it to people who love arts crafts.The book contains only photos, no craft instructions It is like an arts crafts exhibit showing creative works from artists all over the world Just to give you an idea Necklace made from cards, barbie parts face lips necklaces, table cloth made of Splenda packages, handbags made out of zippersYou get the idea it s really epic


    20. Beautiful art as well as useful items made by repurposing items Many many artists are respresented in this book It was fun to look through and see how really creative people can be Very inspiring book Makes me want to look at things a bit differently A wonderful resource for artists or those who just want to be inspired and amazed.


    21. I picked this book out from the library by the title I was hoping for every day type reuse ideas This book is geared to artists and has cutting edge type crafts The format is different with all the pictures in the front and descriptions for each picture in the back.


    22. Just a catalogJust a catalogUnless your looking for a catalog, I don t recommend this This is not an art instruction book It s browsing pictures of things people made including where you can shop for tier items.


    23. This was really fun to look at It wasn t quite what I expected though I thought I was getting a book of projects ideas with instructions and materials lists Nevertheless, there are some really really cool ideas in here that I m going to have to keep in mind.


    24. Not particularly well curated selection of the thousands maybe millions at this point of of images of this kind you can see on etsy or pinterest Don t bother unless you want a coffee table book for an extremely uninspired friend.





    25. Cool Neat inspiration If you are really crafty and want some new ideas, flip through this I was hoping it would be a how to and I could attempt some of the projects, but it s of a catalog.
