    This book is great for design inspiration; and unlike other books in the field, tells you what materials the artist used and more about their process. It's great to see what can be done through creativity and thinking beyond the computer screen.

    This book is everything I want to be as a graphic designer. Adding tactility and texture to any work makes it endlessly more interesting and compelling.

    I was expecting more tips, and methods and the like than examples of projects. It was nice because it showed a range of projects and highlighted elements of it. Not really what I wanted or was looking for.

    I loved this book. It's a great design book for those interested in mixing both handmade products with graphic design. I discovered several great ideas that I'm looking forward to testing.

    I've just started but I love this book. Reminds me of my old school design roots before clip-art and computers. I've just started but I love this book. Reminds me of my old school design roots before clip-art and computers.
