There’s some blow-you-away lookers sitting on our shelves over here. My paltry photography skills doesn’t do them justice so you should really just come and take a peak. One rule: no drooling!

Here’s a tiny sampling with work from Tara Bursey, Robert Dayton, HLG, fox italic, Karl Addison, Faye Moorhouse, Pogobooks, naivsuper & nieves.


Wondering how far things have come since 2007? Maybe even what crafters in Montreal were up to in 2002? We’ve got some pretty great crafty crit, lit and know-how from the early-ish days of this movement here in The Reading Raum! Err…is it still a movement, or have we arrived?

Included here is CROQ #4 with a recap of the very first Craft Congress(!) and a few d.i.y. manuals from Church of Craft congregations in Montreal and Toronto. Special thanks goes to kabinet friend Jen Anisef for caring for many of these gems over the years.
