Book review - You Are Awesome: 21 Crafts to Make You Happy

EnglishAnd ta-daaaa! You Are Awesome: 21 Crafts to Make You Happy, a new crafty book review for you!

When I received this book (few weeks ago) I’ve been SO happy – I didn’t know it – it’s a new publication and comes from Cicada Books, a lovely publishing company based in United Kingdom.

They produces books about art, design, craft and visual ideas since 2009.

My opinion on the book:

I am a very visual type when it comes to craft and handmade things so my first impression is intimately linked to the aesthetics of the book, that in this case is adorable!

The  choice of the cover (both graphically and for the particularly thick hardcover), the quality of the photos, the use of an orange fluo color inside (love it!), the choiche to add an hand-written and hand-drawn touch with adorable sketches to better illustrate the projects, the fact itself that projects are all lovely, easy to do and funny!

I only found one flaw: 21 projects on a lovely book like this are too few! I would have liked to have browsed at least a hundred! ;)

My final verdict is… I LOVE this book!
I’m so happy to have it in my crafty book collection!
Thanks Cicada Books and thanks Abbey! :))

You can buy it here.

La mia opinione sul libro:

Sono un tipo molto ‘visivo’ quando si tratta di craft e di cose handmade, perciò la mia prima impressione è intimamente legata all’estetica del libro che, in questo caso, è adorabile!

La scelta della copertina (sia graficamente che per il materiale, un cartoncino particolarmente spesso), la qualità delle foto, l’uso di un colore arancio fluo all’interno (lo amo!), la scelta di aggiungere un tocco di scritto-a-mano e disegnato-a-mano con carinissimi sketches per meglio illustrare i progetti, il fatto stesso che i progetti sono tutti molto carini, facili e divertenti!

Ho trovato una sola pecca: in un libro così bello 21 progetti sono troppo pochi! Mi sarebbe piaciuto averne sfogliati almeno un centinaio! ;)

Il mio verdetto finale è… AMO questo libro!
Sono felicissima di averlo nella mia collezione di libri sull’handmade e il DIY!
Grazie Cicada Books e grazie Abbey! :))
