Review:

...a collection of step-by-step projects and idea-inducing tips for aspiring creatives and activists alike....Get ready to leave things way more interesting than you found them. -- Penescola Independent News, September 2007

"Some people join Greenpeace and throw themselves in front of assive whaling ships.. which is a good thing, but not all of us are destined to become committed social activists. Inspired by the philosophy that great change can begin with smal steps, The Guerilla Art Kit is about inventive ways to not only take a stand on issues about which you feel passionate, but also contribute to the world creatively." -- Frances Atkinson --Make It Yourself, August 4, 2007

"The Guerilla Art Kit shows how small artistic acts can start a revolution. Release your inner artist or activist using the step by step excersizes, cut out projects, sticker ideas and more." --Avenue Bookstore

"the untrained would-be Banksy will appreciate her clear instructions, cool illustrations, and handy list of books and websites for further reading." --Time Out Chicago, November 22, 2008

"the perfect gift for your socially concious, NoLogo-loving friend who is too polite to throw a trash can through the window of Starbucks. Smith never turns preachy as she explains hwo to transform your environment and get other people thinking with simple tools like chalk, wheat paste, yarn and found objects." -- RL --Time Out Chicago, November 22-28, 2007

"The Guerilla Art Kit contains everything you need to put your message out into the world. " --The Brunswick St. Bookstore, 2008

"The most apealing feature to this new work is its whimsical apearance. The small 6 x 7.5 manual looks as if the author has just finished asembling it with a particular reader in mind.... The thrill of anonymity and adding to the environment creatively is quite appealing." -- Beth Hemke Shapiro --Fore Word, December 1, 2007

"author-turned-guerilla artist Keri Smith describes a basic formula for a seed bomb that incldes two parts native seeds, three parts compost, five parts red or brown clay(find this at a ceramic supply store), and some water. Form together in a small penny-sized ball, dry for 24 to 48 hours, and drop at will. " --Whole Living, June, 2008

"The lay-flat hardcover binder format is perfect for a toolkit on making stickers, wheat paste, stencils and more lending to putting a message out in the world. It's all about using inexpensive and common materials to put one's message out: chapter provide simple illustrations and recipes for slogan stickers and more. A top pick for any DIY business or advertising student." --The Midwest Book Review
