The perfect gift for fans of classic novels, crafting and puns.

'There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my glue gun.'

This crafting celebration of literary classics will transport you and your scissors far from your kitchen table: allow your Mod Podge to smooth your way into the Gilded Age with 'The Decoupage of Innocence', or your craft knife to help you conceal an illicit eBook with 'Lady Chatterley's Kindle Cover'. Or simply create the perfect picnic accessory, to be enjoyed alongside some ginger beer with 'Five Go to Smuggler's Cake Topper'.

From a shelf made of books to paper flowers, Christmas wreaths to table decorations, A Loom of One's Own is a pun-filled celebration of crafting and writing that will appeal to book lovers or anyone who owns a glue gun.

About the Author

Virginia Wool was an English writer, feminist and craft-obsessive. The seventh child in her family, she spent most of her youth searching for the perfect place to house her burgeoning craft collection. She described creating seminal works of modernist fiction as a frivolous pastime - an amusing distraction from her more serious pursuits: like making at 6-ft tall papier mache lighthouse. Her most famous piece of non-fiction, A Loom of One's Own, centres around her search for creative freedom and her very own loom, featuring all her favourite literary-inspired crafts.
