It's back -- with more tape and more projects: 18 projects using the do-it-yourselfer's not-so-secret weapon. NASA has a written policy that requires every space shuttle mission to carry at least one roll of "the gray tape." Duct tape now comes in designer colors, and for the color-shy there's a transparent version. The once-humble tape has hit the big time, and now there are duct-tape clubs, competitions and websites. In the words of Red Green, head possum on the PBS-syndicated The Red Green Show, "Spare the duct tape, spoil the job." In this instructive, entertaining and downright funny how-to book, Joe Wilson shows how to rip, cut and fold ordinary duct tape to make 18 amazing projects, including: - Wallet - Barbecue apron - Lunchbox - Tool belt - Cell phone holder - Baseball cap - TV chair caddy - Raingear for pets - Toilet roll cover - Halloween masks. Ductigami is more fun than a crossword puzzle, more useful than a welder's certificate, and more durable than a rechargeable battery. With duct tape it's easy to create a remarkable personal gift for any occasion.02

[Review of 1st edition: ] Let's face it, duct tape holds the world together. Now there's a new book that takes duct tape above and beyond its duties. This funny how-to book is perfect for the handyman (or woman)... even great for kids.
Develop a creative side with the sturdy, useful cousin of origami: ductigami. "Works of art" might stretch the truth a bit, but duct tape creations are entertaining and surprisingly practical. How about a shower curtain made out of duct tape? Sure, why not?! Duct tape is possibly the most useful single object in the entire world outside of the wheel and Swiss army knives. Joe Wilson, a modern design visionary if ever there was one, shows us how to rip, cut and fold duct tape to make 18 amazing projects, including a wallet, a barbecue apron, a lunchbox, a tool belt, a cell phone holder, a baseball cap, raingear for pets, a toilet roll cover and Halloween masks. We all need a lunch box constructed from duct tape. If NASA insists that every Space Shuttle mission carries at least one roll of duct tape then you need this book to satisfy your creative urges. Buy Ductigami: The Art of the Tape - make something wonderful and gray.
