Readymade

 By Shoshana Berger and Grace Hawthorne

 

While a wine rack made of coat hangers might not suit every DIY decorator, creative reuse of everyday objects just makes sense. In Readymade: How to Make (Almost) Anything, a FedEx tube works as a CD rack, discarded drawers become shelves and clothespins are just waiting to be crafted into doormats. Sections on the history of glass, metal, paper, wood and plastic add perspective to the case for reuse. Some seemingly random sections ("A Timeline of Fear and Loathing," and "How to Pen the Perfect Love Letter") actually make this book an engaging read for anyone. Shoshana Berger and Grace Hawthorne, the founders of Readymade Magazine, have fed and cared for this animal. It will not be domesticated. It runs wild and breathes free. Hardcover, 208 pages.
