    According to Amy Sedaris, it’s often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. But in her new book SIMPLE TIMES she sets the record straight, doing for crafting what she did so brilliantly and successfully for entertaining in her bestseller I Like You. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life’s more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows us that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters. Readers will discover how to make popular crafts such as crab claw roach clips, tinfoil balls and crepe paper moccasins; where to look for inspiration (buy fruit and let it get old, what shapes does it turn into?); instructions for creating your very own craft room; and ways to avoid the most common crafting accidents (sawdust fires, feather asphyxia, pine cone lodged in throat); plus whole chapters full of crafting ideas (pompom ringworms!) that will inspire you to create your own hastily constructed obscure d’arts; and more of the brilliant recipes and ingenious ideas for hostessing and entertaining that she gave us in I Like You.

    Spiroglyphics are a totally original idea from the twisted mind of genius puzzle-designer Thomas Pavitte!

    Spiroglyphics are even more incredible than anything he has done before. At first glance spiroglyphics appear to be nothing but simple spirals. But if you look a little closer you’ll see that the spiroglyphics are in fact two spirals joined at the middle and varying subtly in width as they wind to the centre. It’s only when you pick up a pen and start to colour them that they come alive.

    As you fill in the lines you’ll find yourself creating surprising eye-popping portraits of musical icons such as:
    · David Bowie
    · Michael Jackson
    · Amy Winehouse
    · Beyoncé
    · Elton John

    Fun to create and amazing to look at the Spiroglyphics will blow your mind and make amazing artworks for your wall!
