Yet another book perfect for a rainy summer day: Upcyclist. Even though the subtitle is “Reclaimed and remade furniture, lightning and interiors” this is not a DIY-book for beginners!
Upcyclist by Antonia Edwards is a very inspiring book based on the upcycling-trend, were low-value objects are transformed into new and beautiful creations. The book presents designers and other makers as “Upcyclists” and shows us their creations. I love to read about creative people on the right path of recycling. Maybe you can’t copy the creations in the book – but maybe it will inspire you to be an upcyclist on smaller projects to make us all waste less.
