I absolutely adore this book series. So cute! It's great for creative inspiration, and a creative tool for those who would actually make something with the patterns. I can see how people would find this book useful, but personally speaking (I am a graphic designer), it serves more as just a creative inspiration. These pint-sized books are also pretty pricey in my opinion -- not individually, but if you want to get a collection going, it adds up! The nice thing about this book is that each page has its own pattern with a number that corresponds to the file name on the CD-ROM (which is included with the book), so it's easy to find what you're looking for.
