24 of the world's leading designers contribute one object each for kids to make themselves
For the young makers in the family, this beautifully designed handbook offers 24 unique and practical objects for kids to make and use. Each project features fully-illustrated step-by-step instructions, a photographic list of materials, the approximate cost, timing, and a photograph of the finished product. The 24 contributors range from lauded graphic designers to successful industrial designers, all of whom considered this young audience in the creation of their projects. This unusual and engaging book of activities grants children access to world-class design in their very own homes, and may even inspire a few to become designers themselves
