Altered Upcycling has put together several community art books and has now announced a call for craft project submissions so that artists and crafters from all over the world can send in their projects for publication.
A recent collaborative book by Altered Upcycling, The Green Crafts Lifestyle - Learn to Upcycle Wood, Paper, Plastic, Fabric and Paper with 35 Exciting Projects and Tutorials reached world No. 2 on Amazon.com resulting in a lot of exposure for the artists and crafters involved. This Kindle book was put together by 20 artists from all over the world and include projects that upcycle furniture, card, paper, metal tins, plastic packaging and everything in between. The range and variety of these projects is truly amazing.

All projects have to be submitted to thecraftycan(at)gmail(dot)com in word format with pictures attached explaining each step clearly.
