Re:Create is an easy to follow, how-to guide to making unique and personalised books by hand. With a focus on repurposing, reusing and recycling, Liz approached the projects in Re:Create with a budget of just NZ $35. She visits her local flea markets and charity shops to source tools and materials that catch her eye, adding incidental treasures from her collage trolley to really bring her book projects to life.



  • Spot everyday items that can be repurposed into books, covers and/or pages.
  • Use collage, found objects and stamps to customise your covers and contents.
  • Turn a disaster into an opportunity to create a truly unique piece of work.


Don't be! Liz tackles mistakes in a fun and playful way. As an experienced book arts tutor, she knows how the fear of doing-it-wrong can hold people back. In the Miss Takes chapter, she encourages readers to transform slip-ups and gaffes into fun and reusable matter for detailing and finishing the featured projects.
