Kitschy Crafts . . .
So you ask, What is kitsch? Kitsch was once a derogatory term used to describe art that was low quality, thrown together, repetitive, cheesy, inferior and tasteless. But don't let the name fool you, this book is a wonderful collection of craft fads from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Paging through it you can't help but fall into the past.
The individual articiles and instructions are fairly short, so there are a whole lot of them. There are five chapters, each relating to a certain craft. And every page loaded with beautiful vintage photographs.
Well that does it for the book review for the month of January. If anyone has a book that they would like to be reviewed here at http://www.creativechickscafe.com/ please drop me an e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or just post a comment below. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this review.
As always, "Keep Creating"!
