During this time, he was introduced to the Peters Valley Craft Education Center in nearby Layton, New Jersey, where he served on the Board of Directors for twenty years.

Readers want creative challenge and stimulation, and author Jim Whitman delivers with this complete woodworking curriculum.

Redefining the Doll with Upcycled Materials Linda O’Brien and Opie O’Brien

New in Paperback

Item # 194984 AQ ISBN: 978-1-59253-744-0 (HC 978-1-592353-562-0)

A unique and inspired view into the world of mixed media doll making. ÎÎ Brings the popular reuse angle to the world of doll making. ÎÎ Linda and Opie are well known artists who teach popular workshops on the art of doll making.

Originally from New York City, Linda and Opie O’Brien are full time artists living on Lake Erie in Ohio with their cats Angelus and Angel. They teach workshops nationally and internationally. Their work includes jewelry, Dada dolls, artist books, assemblage, collage, masks, music, and more, and has been featured in numerous books, magazines, galleries, exhibitions, solo shows, museum gift shops, and private collections.

Inspired by the “Dada” notion of making art from materials that would not typically be combined or expected to go together, and driven by a similar sense of irony and humor, this book presents a unique approach to creating mixed-media dolls. A must-have for anyone interested in found object art and the human form, it is a thoughtful and provocative exploration of the power, symbolism, and cultural significance of dolls and representational figures. The authors share detailed techniques for using surface embellishments, using molds and molding products, and building and transforming disparate objects into whimsical, inspiring dolls. Beginning with a variety of substrates, readers are guided step by step through five types of doll construction. Numerous variations on each of the core projects promote further experimentation. Includes an inspiring gallery of mixed-media dolls from leading artists.

A unique volume that combines creative photography, journaling, and art techniques. ÎÎ Shows how visual art journaling can be enhanced through digital photography. ÎÎ Explores the artistic side of digital photography, offering tips on taking successful, artful images to use in your journals. ÎÎ Hardworking manual that includes both art and photography techniques used in tandem.

LK Ludwig creates art and chases her three small children around in a Victorian four-square in a very small town (pop. 4,023) in western Pennsylvania. Many weekends are spent in the woods and at the river with her husband and her children, where family memories and art are made while the Allegheny River flows by. With a strong belief in creating around what she knows, nature, parenting, love, and life seep deeply into LK’s artwork, making it content rich and personally meaningful. LK is the author of Mixed Media Nature Journals, True Vision: Authentic Art Journaling, and Collaborative Art Journals. LK teaches at various venues across the US and internationally.

Point and Shoot Art Journaling shows how to create better photographs and use that unlimited source of original imagery to create rich artist journal pages using techniques that manipulate and alter the photographs by hand, rather than digitally. These high touch (rather than high tech) techniques integrate other art forms such as mixed-media painting and collage.

The book is especially tailored to point and shoot cameras, including camera phones, making the techniques and information widely accessible. Creative photography, journaling, and art exercises cover themes such as poetry and dreams and shadows and light. Interesting photographers’ works are showcased to expand the reader’s sense of what is possible.

Ann Baldwin was born in London, England, and lived there until 1990 when she came to live in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband.

Experimenting with Alternative Methods for Painting and Collage Dan Tranberg

Item # 194995 AQ ISBN: 978-1-59253-752-5 $24.99 US £16.99 UK $27.99 CAN 8.5 x 11 in 216 x 279 mm 144 pages, PB 250 color photos All rights available Crafts & Hobbies/Mixed Media Ct. Qty. 20

Acrylic Fusion stimulates creativity and encourages experimentation through a diverse range of alternative paint techniques, unconventional processes, and unique materials. ÎÎ Shows cutting edge techniques. ÎÎ Must-have resource book which encourages experimentation. ÎÎ Authored by prominent award-winning artist, writer, and critic, and long-time paint instructor at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Dan Tranberg is an awardwinning artist, writer, and critic based in Cleveland, Ohio. He has published over 750 articles on visual art and has exhibited his own work in more than 25 exhibitions. His writing has appeared in national and international publications including Art in America, NY Arts, ArtUS, BOMB, Glass, and Art on Paper, and he has been a frequent contributor to The Plain Dealer since 1999. Since 2000, Tranberg has taught painting and writing at the renown Cleveland Institute of Art. He was awarded an Ohio Excellence in Journalism award in 2004 and received Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowships in 2002 and 2007.


Acrylic Fusion is a unique reference book, designed to excite and motivate artists to push beyond traditional techniques and to explore new approaches to painting. Acrylic Fusion is predicated on the idea that many working artists, whether they went to art school or not, tend to think of painting technique in terms of what is correct or permissible. This mindset stifles creativity and prevents discovery. By contrast, Acrylic Fusion sets artists free by exposing them to a diverse range of alternative techniques, unconventional processes, and integration of unique materials that stimulate creativity and encourage experimentation. Acrylic Fusion is a must-have resource aimed at artists who make paintings, but is also a great reference for any crafters, makers, and DIYers who use paint in their work, whether they make art journals, design greeting cards, or refinish furniture since the techniques can easily be adapted for many different kinds of projects and applications.

Handspun brings new techniques for hand spinning that result in fabulous textural yarns and shows how to use them to create unique, exciting knitwear. ÎÎ Well-known author with name recognition within the art and craft community. ÎÎ The area of spinning continues to grow. ÎÎ The book is one of very few that offer experimental techniques for art yarns.

Pluckyfluff creator Lexi Boeger has forged a new genre in the craft of handspinning. With the publication of Handspun Revolution (self-published) in 2003, and Intertwined (Quarry, 2007)) a small cult interest has literally become the revolution it was rumored to be. Lexi Boeger has been a working artist, writer, and designer for twenty years and brings the perspectives and knowledge gained in these fields to the craft of spinning. She has brought creative spinning to the attention of the international art world through art yarn exhibitions and workshops, and has helped to permanently blur the line between art and craft. Boeger currently produces new works from her studio in California.

Handspun contains a collection of never-before-published spinning techniques along with interesting, creative, hip projects. This book satisfies fans of the author’s first two books in their desire for new materials. As Intertwined becomes more well-known, these handspun styles are flooding the internet craft community. Handspun offers fresh, new, and exciting material for these spinners to move on to. Where Handspun Revolution, the author’s first book, was the spark that ignited the genre of Art-yarn, and Intertwined is considered the bible of creative spinning, Handspun builds upon the now common knowledge of novelty spinning, digging deeper into the traditional underbelly of spinning, not as a means to teach traditional techniques, but rather as a way of turning very traditional forms inside out: Using time-tested techniques to deliver cutting-edge forms. This book also covers fiber-preparation processes, from scouring raw fleece to several carding techniques.
