Felt a bit sorry for this book as it has no reviews. So...I really like it. There is a nice introduction explaining that book art doesn't mean that you cut up your favourite books just in order to make something else.

There are some clever ideas in here ranging from cards, sculptures, artwork, decorations and gift ideas. Some of them do look REALLY hard whereas others (the cards in particular) are much more accessible. The photography and instructions are nice and clear, the templates for design

Great fun for treasure hunting, crafty old book lovers! (That's old books, not old book lovers!) I especially love the covered buttons, the Japanese notebooks and the pop-up flowers book.

I can never resist checking out book art books whenever I come across them! My job is to provide lots of programs for teens in a library, and I love doing book art with them. Also, I love doing book art in my own home-I'm just nerdy like that. And what else are you going to do with all the books you weed from work or home libraries?*

Book Art contained tons of great craft ideas, and almost all of them use a pretty short and standard list of supplies, like a craft knife and tracing paper and glue

For the very crafty...

I love books, and I love decorating with them, so this book really caught my eye. The book includes a number of projects that can be made with old books, such as greeting cards, display scenes, and other artwork. The projects include templates and very clear instructions. One concern... these aren't quickie projects. You'll need to invest a lot of time to recreate these items.

There are so many projects I want to try in this book, most of the decorative variety, and from what I can tell, the directions are clear!
