I am new to felting, and whether you are an utter beginner or I imagine an experienced felter and or textile artist, this book HAS to inspire you! Whilst it isn't a book about how to recreate the amazingly beautiful designs (there are enough books on technique out there), this is THE most thought provoking, idea inspiring, drool generating book on felting I have seen to date - and I have been combing the market for design ideas other than felted animals (no offense to those who love the latter). And yes there are some other good books with good varied felt designs, but if I had to buy or keep only one for inspiration, this would be it! Fabulous pictures, and beneath each picture, you are told of the method used e.g. wet felting, nuno felting, needle felting and the type of wool/materials used. Maybe a bit too contemporary for some folks. Simply, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy - in fact, do more than that, be inspired to be free with your own designs if you felt. And if you don't, find out how to purchase at least one of the items shown in this book!
