Artists 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, interiors, and installations.

Lots of great photos of inspiring crafts. The pictures was what this book was all about.

I was hoping it was going to have a few projects in it but it is actually 1000 photos of projects made from recycled items. It is inspirational and you can get some great ideas, but it is not a how-to project book.

A little description or explanation might save some of these items from being creative garbage.

This is an inspirational book, not an instructional one, like I thought it would be. It is full of photos of things that people have made with "junk." It's interesting to see what people have made, but it would have been better if there were a "Projects" section.
