    I pretty much gave up reading the text and just went through reading the pictures, which are interesting The book is basically about artists who work with crafty mediums, so even though they re using familiar techniques, the results can be disturbing For instance, one artist embroidered on a vintage hankie the phrase, Sometimes I , afraid you will stop loving me, but today I am afraid you will stop fucking me You know, something you wouldn t really hang in the living room when your mother i I pretty much gave up reading the text and just went through reading the pictures, which are interesting The book is basically about artists who work with crafty mediums, so even though they re using familiar techniques, the results can be disturbing For instance, one artist embroidered on a vintage hankie the phrase, Sometimes I , afraid you will stop loving me, but today I am afraid you will stop fucking me You know, something you wouldn t really hang in the living room when your mother in law visits Another artist created beautiful, delicate replicas of taxidermy stuffed animals out of crochet It s very interesting, and it only takes a few minutes to look at all the pics

    The writer is an indie embroiderer and the book covers such pretty and entertaining topics as felt craft, crochet taxidermy, yarn bombing, cushion covers, and indie embroidery It is very heavily illustrated with full colour, full page photographs and has features on each artist that are both informative and entertaining to read, and also helpfully list the artists websites, since while many of these artists now feature in physical real life galleries it is still very much an internet pheno The writer is an indie embroiderer and the book covers such pretty and entertaining topics as felt craft, crochet taxidermy, yarn bombing, cushion covers, and indie embroidery It is very heavily illustrated with full colour, full page photographs and has features on each artist that are both informative and entertaining to read, and also helpfully list the artists websites, since while many of these artists now feature in physical real life galleries it is still very much an internet phenomenon of an art form.I found it delightful and a brilliant little read If you enjoy crafts of any type you re bound to love it as a refreshing bit of inspiration
