Great book for anyone who wants to make a crazy visual journal for fun or for profit.

I'm not quite a fan of their finished products, but the techniques to make packing tape transfers and DIYs are well worth the read.

Wow! Totally inspiring. Now I'm brimming with ideas of what to do with my personal ephemera.
