Review by Kath Steinbring
What a collection of ideas! From Get Ready! Get Set! to Go! this book is poised to ignite a creative fire in even the most blocked imaginations and the newest adventurers in creative endeavors. Projects run from the simplest collection of found objects to more complex projects that include soldering and riveting. There is something here for almost everyone. “Get Ready!” quickly lists the skills necessary to complete each project. “Get Set!” indicates the materials needed. “Go!” outlines step-by-step the process for each project. Designer’s notes (each project has been provided by a different artist/craftsperson) suggest ways to vary the project. A beginning artist may be overwhelmed by some of the complex projects, and a seasoned artist may be underwhelmed by some of the simpler projects; however, there is truly something here for everyone. This is a book to spark the imagination and fire up the work engines; it leaves the reader no excuses for sitting around and doing nothing.
