    I love older, kitschy craft books. Look around your local thrift store or yard sales. The covers may seem they have nothing for you, but crack them open, and yowza! I also really like childrens craft books, because they tell you things you can use around the house, which cuts down on waste and helps me craft with little or no extra money.

    I definately love Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'n Bitch books.

    Retro knitting and crochet books. Also, check your local library for retro books. My library has a bunch of crafty books from the 70s that rock and are fun to check out for new ideas.

    quorn - are you looking for more general books on creativity/art/craftiness, or geared more to specific types of crafts? or both?
