It is true that there is very little text, there are no instructions on how to create these little gems, but that to me is part of the book's appeal. It simply provides the inspiration, shows you what can be done and lets the artist's imagination and expertise create the work of art.
It surprised me that there is so much in this book to interest textile artists. Although in the book much of the work on the ATCs involve the use of collage and, basically, scrapbooking techniques, there are no tedious "how to" instructions given and so the designs can be adapted or used simply for inspiration.
It is obviously a book which inspires more than it informs, but perhaps at the end of the day this book does both of those things.
If you're looking for instructions, guidance, help, techniques- this is NOT the book for you! Though beautiful to look at, and inspiring when you just don't know what to do next, you won't get any help outside pretty pictures. I do have to admit though that the book has inspired me to try my hand at sewing a few ATC's just to see how it goes. I will have to find a book with instructions before I give it a go though!
Definatley lovely to flick through though and nice to see people like you and me in there, worth the buy if like me you love looking at books.
