Recycling of found objects is taken to the level of art form is this creative book-an homage to the wondrous world of artists who create extraordinary objects from what were once very ordinary things. Inside are hundreds of examples showing trash transformed into fascinating sculpture, collages, furniture, jewelry, and clothing — some items functional, some not. Meet the artists who count themselves among an exclusive club of dumpster divers and garbage pickers from all over the United States. And watch as other people’s junk finds new life as treasure. This book, and the innovative artisans inside, will profoundly influence the way you view life and its everyday detritus.
