"I never knew how much fun it would be to create so many different things from duct tape until this book." - New Age Mama "Duct tape crafts have moved beyond basic wallets and the legendary duct tape prom dressesEURO"this inexpensive craft material can be used to make everything from surprisingly realistic bonsai to braided belts and intricate artwork. Davis, a visual artist who began working with duct tape as a teen, provides an overview of basic techniques including tips for folding, cutting, and making sheets that can be used in larger pieces. The projects are divided into five basic categories (flowers; wallets, purses, bags, and more; jewelry and other accessories; sculptures; and tableaux) and each section features a number of selections of Davis's work. The subtitle gives a hint to the book's greatest flaw. There may be 101 ideas within this book, but only seven projects with step-by-step directions. While the pictures are inspiring, the lack of instructions make for a book that says "look what I did" more than "look what you can do." VERDICT Though experienced duct tape crafters may be able to reverse-engineer Davis's projects, beginners would be better aided by a wider variety of projects with instructions, such as those found in books by Patti Wallenfang (Go Crazy with Duct Tape) or Richela Fabian Morgan (Tape It & Make It)." - Library Journal
