This book is gorgeous - packed with inspiration and suggestions. It was dispatched with great speed (even in snowy weather) with a personal contact from the author and a thoughtful signature on the first page. I cannot recommend highly enough!
I've chosen a 5 star rating for this book as it's well deserved. This author/artist was recommended through my art tutor, and i'm thoroughly pleased with this book. I've found it very inspiring, and the illustrations and work produced by Frances Pickering is so original. The images (on every page) are beautiful. I will be purchasing the other book when I can. it is beautifully presented in a gloss illustrated paperback book. highly recommended
This book is a real delight. Each beautifully illustrated page is a feast for the eyes and sets the imagination running. It provides encouraging practical information and ideas for possible projects. My sewing experience is minimal, artistic ability questionable but I'm inspired and can't wait to have a go.
Anyone who is interested in art or stitched textiles will love this book. Frances is a very talented lady who is happy to share her wealth of knowledge with her students. Her courses, if you are one of the lucky ones to get on one, will inspire you for a lifetime. Her little books are so beautifully reproduced that they will, in the future be in museums. Get both of her books if you can and get her to write the next one is soon as she is able. Such talent is very rare. Thank you Frances for inspiring me.
It his book was delivered super speedy from the seller and arrived well wrapped. Inside was a delight, inspiration for all things art journal. The textiles draw you in with their colour and texture. If you are interested in textile art journals I highly recommend this book.
