The Design Collective - Pincushions


Available Now!!!


Introducing a brand new series of books from Inspirations – The Design Collective. In this first volume, Pincushions have been given a makeover. Each designer was given the same brief. There were no rules. No guidelines. The only criteria: the final project must house pins and needles.


The result? The most imaginative, clever, and artistic pincushions you have ever seen.
