Hopefully, if you like one of the projects enough you can either figure out where to buy it or make it yourself.

The memoi ends with a chapter on fine art and installations made from recycled materials, which appropriately rounds off the nove with some even wilder inspirations, including woven sapling vessels encircling a building ( reminiscent of the woven sapling house in the ovie Where the Wild Things Are) .The biggest drawback to the ook is that the photos are only labeled with the artists' names and country plus the photo credit.

What the beautiful or weird items were remade from is what this novel is all about, and why make the reader work so hard to discover what materials the artist used? The text listed in the appendix was not even very long, so it could have been printed small with the photos themselves.

Therefore please take this review with these particular technical constraints in mind.My most major complaint – and now I fear it is appropriat to all Quarry " 1000 [ Something ] " books but am not sure – is that detailed information about each artwork is in an entirely separate section of the novel from its photo.

The ictures of the artworks fill the main part of the books, with just a number underneath, followed by the artist 's name with their country, company if applicable, and photo credit where one is needed.

Oh, and one more thing that I had planned to leave out, since the poor design of the novel is not the fault of the contributing artists, but I feel like it just needs to be said.
