Juxtapoz Handmade

Juxtapoz Handmade (Ginko Press) has united some of the worlds most unique, talented, contemporary handicraft makers into one brilliant book! Works are designed using found materials, paper, cardboard, cloth, porcelain, metal, wool and yarn etc. Materials have been stitched, etched and formed to create something that crosses the boundary between craft, design and contemporary art.

The cover design is done by Ana Serrano who makes these colourful & intricate building installations using paper, cardboard & other found materials. She has become one of my favourite artists now!

Some artists featured include; Nicole Gastonguay (who makes knitted bento's!), Megan Whitmarsh, Stephanie Munroe, Christl Hansman, Diem Chau , Ana Serrano, Stephanie Anderson and Christopher Bettig .

Christopher Bettig's fabric & material creations

I've been a fan of Stephanie Anderson's paper burger creations for some time now after seeing her creations at local zine fairs, so it was wonderful to see her featured in this book.
Still yet to get my hands on one of these burgers though...
Check her Flickr site for more wonderful things.
