Book of Librarian Crafts
I’m starting a new project, with the working title of “Librarian Crafts.”
My idea is to have sections with different categories:
- pre-school story-time crafts
- school age crafts
- crafts for adults using books and other library-themed items
The trick to that will be keeping it focused and not just a loose collection of unrelated things. My instructions need to be consistent in style, illustration and tone. I need to research a bunch of things: how to do layout, what constitutes original and not plagiarized craft ideas, how to take professional looking shots of my crafts and what comparable books look like in length. I also need to make lists of crafts and decide what is going into the book. Should I include (with permission) pictures of other people’s crafts?
Dear readers, I would love your input. Tell me about what you think of the concept, what crafts you feel should be in the book, and ideas for putting the book together.
