Bazaar Bizarre was an extension of the craft fair of the same name, and came out to early fanfare in such publications as USA Today. "Never underestimate the power of Ziploc bags, duct tape and beer cans. That's what I learned last week, when I got a crash course in cutting-edge crafts nearly everywhere I looked: from designer Todd Oldham's five-part HGTV series ...and in author Greg Der Ananian's Bazaar Bizarre ... As Bizarre's subtitle points out, many of today's do-it-yourself items are "not your granny's crafts" — they're edgier, more diverse and often cheaper."
The book is a how-to craft book that features specific projects contributed by various celebrity crafters, such as Dana Berkowitz and Leah Kramer of Craftster. Besides the crafters narrating how to make their featured items, there are interviews covering topics such as the state of DIY culture, music, independent film, etc. The book features projects such as:
- a 'dirty pillow' with traditional embroidery used to spell out subversive sayings
- 'anarchy soap' showing how to make your own soap and mold it into the ubiquitous anarchy symbol
- a 'craft tote' with pockets for knitting needles, scissors, and craft supplies, decorated with punk fabrics
- vinyl cuffs made out of colored vinyl from vinyl LPs and EPs

Famous quotes containing the word book:
“Digressions, incontestably, are the sunshine;Mthey are the life, the soul of reading!take them out of this book, for instance,you might as well take the book along with them;Mone cold external winter would reign in every page of it; restore them to the writer;Mhe steps forth like a bridegroom,bids All-hail; brings in variety, and forbids the appetite to fail.”
—Laurence Sterne (17131768)
“When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What is to happen next will take place within the four walls of the story. And this is possible because the storys voice makes everything its own.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
