An ideabook can be many things: a keepsake; a work of art; a source of inspiration; a method of organisation; a collection of memories; a way to store recipes or patterns; a genealogical journal; a wedding planner or just a peek inside the chaos and creativity of our own mind! With Arne and Carlos's wit, style and trademark handcrafting genius to guide the reader, this book will show them how to make and enjoy their own ideabook. There is guidance on the materials and tools you need and detailed, step-by-step demonstrations showing the reader how to sew the pages, tie the end threads, bind the sections of paper together, glue the spine and create the cover. There's then a large section devoted to various types of ideabook designed to inspire and enthuse the reader, including Christmas, Children's Cooking, Garden, Sewing and Travel Ideabooks.
Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison, Norwegian and Swedish respectively, established their design company ARNE & CARLOS in 2002. Drawing on traditional Scandinavian influences and the natural environment, they create original and striking knitwear, and work with such prestigious fashion designers as Comme des Garcons. Arne and Carlos's creative base is their eclectic farm in Norway, where they absorb the rich tradition of Scandinavian arts and crafts while exploring their own knitwear inspirations. www.arne-carlos.com
