BY YOURSELF -
100% HANDMADE DESIGNER DIY PROJECTS FOR THE HOME, FROM
FURNITURE TO ACCESSORIES BY PETER FEHRENTZ
Hardback | £18.00
You can get ideas for your own creations practically everywhere:
in the DIY store, at the scrap yard, at the flea market and in places
you would never expect to find inspiration. It is fun to experiment with
different materials and to put them in a new and unexpected context.
Sometimes an idea is very simple but it may turn out to be quite
complicated to realise. You may have to tinker with it for quite a while
until it looks the way you envisaged it. But at the end of the day, you
can be proud to have created something all by yourself: an object to
give to a friend or to enhance your own space. Made by Yourself is a
book for everyone who loves to take a new and creative look at things.
Made by Yourself is a practical and inspirational book filled with
sophisticated and creative ideas. Brilliantly presented and beautifully
photographed, it includes forty eight unique objects and original pieces
of furniture made from stone, wood, paper, cardboard, glass,
ceramics, metal, plastic, fabric or leather that are easy to recreate
through simple step by step instructions, illustrations and patterns.
Each chapter is dedicated to a different material.
Readers looking to personalise their home can follow the easy tutorials
in the book, as well as sketches and patterns. Expertly guided by a
professional designer and stylist, both beginners and established
designers will feel confident and inspired to start their own projects.

The Star Seed Legacy Book
Creative Drawing for Cloud Spotters and Daydreamers
By Martin Feijoo
Quarry | 3rd March 2016
Paperback | £12.99
"When I was a child, I was told that clouds' shapes were created by
expert balloon twister clowns who live in the sky, so that they can keep
entertaining children." - Martin Feijoo
Look up at the clouds. What do you see? What do you sketch?
As a child, you'd spend hours looking at the sky on a summer day,
watching clouds pass, and identifying shapes, animals, scenes, and more.
"That one looks like a dinosaur!" is just one of the ways that these
muses in the sky can be perceived.
With Cloud Sketch by Martin Fiejoo, it's time to take what you see and
use it to create wonderful, whimsical art right on the photographs.
In Cloud Sketch, you'll discover Martin's general technique for drawing
imaginative creations over photographs of clouds. Then, enjoy a
selection of completed cloud sketches from Martin Feijoo, from his
wildly popular art series Shaping Clouds. Take on the taks of finishing
the included partial cloud sketches. Explore the freedom of a host of
"blank" clouds for doodling your own designs. Finally, you'll find blank
journal pages where you can add in images of clouds from your own life
on which to sketch.
