Here is the first book to explore the full range of its possibilities, from turning a vintage board game into a nostalgic wall hanging to creating whimsical art dolls from children's blocks. Take a look at the artistic traditions that inspired this movement, and see how to use the crafter's familiar tools, materials, and processes in entirely new ways.
