The work begins simply, with a basic frame for mounting treasured mementos. Then, learn how to create doors, shelves, drawers, and other architectural features. There are suggestions on embellishments to personalize the shrine, and even ideas for possible objects to include. In addition to the author, 8 renowned shrine artists provide hands-on information about how they created their distinctive structures, and another two dozen experts offer insights into their creative practices.
