Submitter: The copyright on this delightful gem is 1997. We are a small to medium public library in a suburban area. Came across this book that hasn’t moved in several years… no surprise. A lot of our craft books have been things that were trendy for a while and have now fallen out of fashion and haven’t circulated in a couple of years. This was my um… favorite?
There was some terror among the staff when we found the clown (?) painting with the Circus Frieze.
Most of the crafts in the book are now done faster and more accessibly at home with a home computer, photo editing software and a printer. At least here in our suburban area, I’m not sure where the nearest “copy shop” would be. Maybe at the UPS store?
Holly: There are some ok ideas in this book, but I agree that they could be done faster and with better results on a home computer than on a photocopier. It comes with 32 pages of non-copyrighted images. These days we call that “creative commons” and there are millions of images freely available online.
