Meet the Author Tonight!

Criminals attract an audience. People admire the sneakiness and creativity of the profession while cursing the dastardly outcomes. So why not have all of the tricks without the trade? Criminal Crafts brings together illicit behavior and artistic expression with dark humor in this do-it-yourself project book. Author Shawn Bowman focuses on original crafts and recipes themed in noir, murder, retro espionage, pulp fiction, mafia, and voodoo.

Crafters and mischief lovers alike will love this book of 30 projects revolving around notorious criminals and their activities. From John Dillinger's soap gun to Bonnie Parker's gunshot poetry journal, readers will find themselves both amused and intrigued with the devious creativity. Not to mention how impressed party guests will be when they show up to Flaming Amy cocktails and cocktail bars stashed in violin cases. And just wait until you show off your shiv cozy! From the practical to the classically kitsch, Criminal Crafts are art projects readers will love.

Tonight, Friday, July 13, 2012, at our Colfax Avenue Store:
Former professional chef and current crafter extraordinaire Miss Demeanor, a.k.a. Shawn Gascoyne Bowman dallied briefly in a promising East Coast film career, but decided to chuck it away to raise a demanding and ungrateful family and ill-tempered dog. She sells her notorious crafts at Bowman will offer a devious demonstration of one of her craft projects and sign her new book Criminal Crafts: Outlaw Projects for Scoundrels, Cheats, and Armchair Detectives.
