Book Review Creative Computer Crafts by Marcelle Costanza




Author: Marcelle Costanza
ISBN: 1593270682
Publisher: No Starch Press
208 pages
Published: May 2006

This book by Marcelle Costanza is more than just 50 computer craft projects. It is packed with useful information for the beginner and advanced computer crafter. Costanza begins with the background and history of computer crafts, the growth of computer crafting techniques and the popularity of computer crafts on the web. Next, she discusses the tools you will need to get started such as a computer, printer, software, special papers, inks, scanner and digital camera. She covers what is available on the market and what to look for when choosing the best equipment for your needs. She also gives some useful tips that she has discovered over the years.

One thing that makes this book stand out from the others on this topic is the section about starting your own computer crafts business. Costanza shares her experiences and knowledge gained while starting her own business and discusses what options you have available as you make those startup decisions.

The main part of the book is the step-by-step instructions for the 50 craft projects. Here you will find some favorites such as a candy bar wrapper, note pad and memory book. But you will also enjoy some projects you may not have considered before such as a BarbieR doll outfit and a revolving musical carousel. There is also a thorough list of computer craft websites, communities and suppliers.

Marcelle Costanza is a long time traditional and computer crafter and started her online business, The Crafty PC TM, in 2000.
