This informative book introduces the reader to three South African artists who create works of art using materials that have been thrown away. Each section is a small case study of the artists and how they make their pieces. Detailed photographs support the text. Readers are encouraged to think about the feelings that the different works of art evoke. At the end of the book there is a double-page spread with step-by-step instructions for learners to make their own works of art from rubbish.
