Landauer. Feb. 2024. 96p. ISBN 9781639810277. pap. CRAFTS
Artist/designer Girard has fused art, history, and functionality in her quest to become a rug turf producer. She prevailed by being innovative, which has opened the floodgates of her creative style. Her passion for this utilitarian union motivated her to share what she has learned with others. The outcome is a work that interested readers can pick up, read, and then begin to produce beautiful pieces of their own. She introduces and describes how to use the tools of the craft, and she also details the materials needed, giving recommendations for the best products to use. Her book includes catchy text boxes and fonts to share important tips. There are also colorful graphics and labels on photographs and illustrations to clearly explain coordinating written, step-by-step instructions for three projects. She encourages readers to make their own designs, but there are also a number of patterns that can be used to produce a fine rug. The book concludes with a gallery of photographs of her own works.
VERDICT A fun option for readers who want to learn how to create colorful rugs, wall hangings, and contemporary home furnishings.
