There are large numbers of disabled people who are already engaged in practising a variety of crafts, and it is suprising that at present there is no national training structure available for those people who are teaching crafts to the disabled. The result is that helpers are often trying to cope with the demand for instruction without accurate information on the problems likely to be faced, on the best choices of crafts to teach or the ways that crafts can be modified to suit the largest number of people.

The first part of the book is aimed essentially at instructors, be they officially employed in that capacity or just volunteers and friends. The topics dealt with are professional practice and approach, teaching methods, visual aids, craft aids, craft shows and outings. The author then describes a number of crafts in the second part of the book, selected, according to her own experience as a teacher of the disabled, for their interest and suitability.

The techniques and materials are carefully listed, and there are a number of suggestions and instructions for items that can be made with the different techniques. The crafts include patchwork, puppetry, soft toy making, stool seating, paper sculpture, macrame, copper and pewter repousse modelling and collage.

The strength of this book is that it is intended specifically for the disabled; it gives much-needed advice for the benefit of those who help the disabled, and sets out the crafts in a manner to match the requirements of the disabled themselves.

Arts and Crafts of South America  Davies, Lucy & Fini, Mo: Arts and Crafts of South America
Tumi 1st 1994
squ format 4to pb 160pp F 715 gms
(Order reference 5211).

A wooden head carved in the north of Brazil to ward off evil spirits; belts woven with symbolic designs from Lake Titicaca in Peru; the beautiful baskets of the Cholo Indians of the Pacific coast of Colombia - whether from coastal areas, forests or mountains, from Pre-Columbian or Spanish Colonial traditions,
from urban workshops or remote villages, the living arts and crafts of South America show an astonishing vitality and diversity. Lucy Davies and Mo Fini have distilled the essence of their extensive research into the creative traditions of this vast area, and also include invaluable advice and reference for collectors. With the aid of special - and often spectacular — photography, they examine all the main media: pottery, wonderfully simple and utilitarian, or formed in complex and ritualistic shapes; jewelry and metalwork in a multiplicity of forms; the arts of weaving plant fibre — sombreros and panamas, bags and baskets; the ancient textile tradition of the Wayuu, a culture in which 'Ser mujer es saber tejer' — `To be a woman is to know how to weave'; painting on clay, leather and glass; wood carving and decoration of dried gourds; and extraordinary crafts such as figuras de masapan, colourful and imaginative bread dough figures from Calderon, Ecuador. Perhaps never before has the legacy of thousands of years of inherited skill and tradition been so richly presented.

Shellwork, Silhouettes, Pressed Flowers, Beadwork, Paperwork, Featherwork, Decorating with Paint: these are some of the crafts which are particularly associated with the Victorian home. But, as Anne Hulbert shows in this book, they can be crafts of today no less than of yesterday. The raw materials cost little sometimes nothing at all. The necessary equipment is cheap, and the techniques are quickly learnt.

The products of Victorian craftwork are now often to be seen in museums and private collections. In the antique shops they can be formidably dear to buy. After studying this book the reader will find that he or she can make his or her own Victorian antiques, at the same time genuine and modern, and can derive a great deal of creative pleasure whilst doing so.

“Feelin groovy?
Keep the Faith, baby, because hippie crafts are back in style. If you lived through the '60s, you'll be happy to see your old favorites again. If you didn't, here's your chance to find out what it was all about.

The far-out projects you'll find here aren't exactly the same as the hippie designs people grooved on in the decade of peace and love. While you'll recognize the source of inspiration, we've reinterpreted the old standards with new colors, materials, and embellishments that say today. Create fabulous hippie chic fashions, from a pretty macrame purse to a cool suede fringe vest. Bring some of that wild '60s flair into your pad by tie-dying throw pillows or crocheting a granny square afghan.

Whether it's a love bead necklace or a pair of bell-bottom jeans with flowered fabric panel inserts, you can make hippie crafts that are anything but square.”

Smith, Harriet: Gothic Jewelry - 35 scary projects to make, give and wear
Cico Books 1st 2011
square fmt 4to paperback 128pp F 490 gms
(Order reference 14832).

Inspired by classic gothic literature and movies, Harriet Smith's jewellery fuses dark beauty and humorous horror imagery—and here she shows you how to craft 35 of her distinct and striking pieces.

Each project is suitable for beginners to jewellery - making, with all the techniques clearly explained at the beginning of the book. The materials and tools used can be found in many arts, beading, DIY and homeware stores or located on the internet—and there are often alternatives to be found in the kitchen, tool cupboard, or an old toy chest.

The pieces incorporate a wide range of materials and there is nothing to stop you making them in the comfort of your own bedroom. Try making the skull earrings, bones bracelet, and dead flower corsage from the Fabrics chapter; in Metal Work and Beading there's a spider web ring, jewel beetle earrings, and a barbed wire bracelet; and you can have fun with the designs in the Acrylic chapter—including a bat brooch and tombstone necklace.

The designs Harriet has created have an eclectic style and aren't just for horror fans—anyone with an interest in craft will find something that captures their attention. The jewellery is easy to make and fun to wear, and will make a truly unique gift.

In commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Ansel Adams (19o2-1984), the centennial exhibition Ansel Adams at 100 presents a surprising new look at this legendary photographer's work. Organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition is directed by the distinguished curator John Szarkowski, director emeritus of the Department of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Szarkowski has painstakingly selected what he considers Adams' finest work and has attempted to find the single best photographic print of each.

Szarkowski notes that "Ansel Adams at. 100 is the product of a thorough review of work that Adams, at various times in his career, considered important. It includes many photographs that will be unfamiliar to lovers of Adams' work, and a substantial number that will be new to Adams scholars. The book is an attempt to identify that work on which Adams’ claim as an important modern artist must rest." Ansel Adams at 100—the exhibition and the book, with Szarkowski's incisive critical essay—is the first serious effort since Adams' death in 1984 to reevaluate his achievement as an artist. This special museum edition also includes a foreword by Sandra S. Phillips that situates Adams' lifework within the context of his native San Francisco.

The exhibition prints, drawn from important public and private collections, have been meticulously reproduced in tritone to create the splendid plates in this catalogue, faithfully rendering the nuances of the original prints. The images have been scaled to reflect the relative sizes of the original photographs and have been impeccably printed on specially made paper from France. The companion volume to an international traveling exhibition, Ansel Adams at 100 is destined to be the definitive book on this great American artist.
