Modern Book Corner: World of Geekcraft
You may have gotten a hint that we’re fans of geeky/nerdy (we mean totally awesome) things when we published the Blue Monday post earlier in the week. Well, if you had inklings about it, let us confirm your suspicions: we’re total nerds and we’re COMPLETELY geeking out over today’s modern book corner choice.
Called “World of Geekcraft,” it’s a book full of projects that will make not just geeks and nerds squeal, but dweebs, dorks, crafters, hipsters and regular people excited to craft. It doesn’t have sweet modern chairs, slick bedspreads or crazy-cool light fixtures in this book, but who needs things to sit on when you could make your own Oregon Trail embroidery art? I mean, really.
A small sampling of the projects you can get your hands dirty with (literally and metaphorically): a Needle-Felted Solar System Mobile (my living room NEEDS this), Pow! Zap! Magnets, Lost Tin Can Telephones and much, much more awesomeness.
Also fun note: this project was completed in no small part from the efforts of a talented group of young men known as Public School (specifically Cody Haltom, Will Bryant and Jay B Sauceda). They’re in Austin, they’re visual rock stars, and we’re really glad they exist because it means we get books like this. Check it out (and pre-order it on Chronicle Books’ website) here.
