I miei ultimi acquisti, tanto per non smentirsi :) questa volta si tratta di artbook e manuali dedicati a chi, come me, ama la creatività. Questi primi quattro volumi sono dedicati allo Steampunk, l'ultimo lo trovate anche su Emule in formato Pdf, ma io ho voluto avere l'originale perché come sapete detesto gli e-book (che volete farci eheh). Eccoli a voi!
Aggiornerò questo post con una recensione non appena li avrò ricevuti e sfogliati per bene :)
This how-to jewelry-making book features the work of an array of invited jewelry designers influenced by the growing Steampunk trend. In Steampunk circles, jewelry-makers are often master metalsmiths whocombine found objects with fine metals to create elaborate pieces. In "Steampunk-Style Jewelry," the projects focus on "no fire" techniques--like simple stringing, wirework, hammering, stamping, gluing, stitching, and off-loom beadwork--so that even a beginner can create pieces in the style. Each project provides a complete materials and tools list, step-by-step instructions, and clear illustrations. This book offers a broad overview of a growing design trend that is part of the literary, industrial design, fashion, and popular culture scene. Readers will learn about the art movement through the many photographic sidebars that explore the many aspects of the trend.
A project book for all skill levels. Step-by-step pictures combined with detailed and humorous instructions keep the pace quick and the excitement level high. Steampunk look combines a Victorian-era sense of romance with a clockwork mechanical-ness. This book adapts those characteristics to polymer clay creations and offers projects that are sophisticated yet playful, challenging without being difficult. This eighth book by well-known author/artist Christi Friesen is her best yet!
