Join Ellen Lupton, co-author of D.I.Y. Kids, for a book signing and hands-on crafting event at aMuse Toys. Ellen's contributions to the design community are many: curator of contemporary design at the Cooper-Hewitt, director the the Graphic Design MFA program at MICA, author and frequent lecturer. But in this book, co-authored with her twin sister Julia Lupton, design-world and mom-world collide.

Published by Princeton Architectural Press, D.I.Y. Kids features real artwork, by real children and "aims to trigger imaginative play, without requiring fees, teams, or a minivan."
