Making Stuff is a brand new type of craft book for a new generation of people looking to make, rather than buy, the stuff they want. Stand-alone ads in The Guardian before Christmas in the broadsheet, the Weekend Magazine, G2 and The Guide. Over 50 useful, beautiful and outright bizarre ideas are laid out clearly in accessible, step by step instructions, and illustrated using hand-drawing and photography. A section at the beginning explains the basic skills; knitting, sewing crocheting, and felting. Rag rugs, felted mittens, a knitted ipod cover, sock monkeys and a passport holder made out of paint brushes are just a few of the ideas listed in the book. The writing takes an informal, personal approach that is alive with energy and passion. Making Stuff is an inspirational and unique title that will appeal to eco-warriors, designers, young families and creative types alike.

Whilst it may at first seem obvious that textiles play a pivotal role in fashion design, the use of fabric is not often discussed in its own right, but is seen merely as a material with which a designer can execute their vision. Fashioning Fabrics seeks to redress this (as it were). Using profiles of numerous iconic designers as well as emerging talents, all of whom put fabric development at the centre of their practices, Fashioning Fabrics attempts to create an overview of how textiles are evolving and impacting on the fashion industry. From Issey Miyake's sculptural pleats to Jessica Ogden's salvaged and reworked vintage fabrics, this book pays homage to the experimental, the beautiful and the extravagant in textile and fashion design.

Punk Style examines the dress of this incredibly diverse, long-lasting and hugely influential subculture and its impact on mainstream fashion. Taking a comprehensive approach, the book includes a historical overview, a discussion of motivations behind dress practices, and a review of fashion cycles and merchandising methods. Punk is frequently positioned as a forerunner of trends that later become commonplace, as demonstrated in the proliferation and acceptance of body modification, the repeated use of deconstruction as a design aesthetic, and the recent boom in fashion that reflects DIY style through handmade crafts. The book explores how this dominant subcultural style continues to expand via the internet, youth buying-power, and the constant re-appropriation of its distinctive styles. This accessible text brings the discussion of punk fashion up-to-date and provides a concise overview for students and scholars and general readers interested in the punk subculture.
