5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little poacket book is a jewl box of ancient illustration. The texts are in Latin and so rather incomprehensible, but the pictures are a delight. A pocket companion for all sorts of waiting-around times.

I have been familiar with this book for many years, but wanted a copy to lend. This fits the bill, although it is showing its age a little. Good value, quickly supplied.

I can do no better than advise crafters to get all three sizes of this punch. they work together very well, and create short-cuts that do not look like short-cuts. A firm that takes a real interst in what you need.

This is the most useful ( to me) of the punches I have acquired. It gives me a wide variety of effects, if used with a little imagination. the firm kindly sourced it for me. Very helpful and efficient.

I was guessing abotu this punch, as to whether it was what I needed. It wasn't I needed a larger one, but it has proved invaluable for the cantres of flowers.
A halepful firm, excellent service.


Port Mortuary, Large Print Edition
Port Mortuary, Large Print Edition

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally incomprehensible., 8 Feb 2012
The original situation here, that of a body bleeding in the mortuary, supposedly with a heartbeat and therefore still alive when put in the body bag, was never properly explained, and though I kept reading in the hope that there would be some fascinating twist revealed, it was hard going.
I started to go off Patricia Cornwell with her "Jack the Ripper" book, and this is was The last Chance Saloon for her. Sorry, no more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 18 Sep 2011
I had high hopes for this chair, after waiting a long time to find the one that fitted my requirements. In fact, it doesn't fit. The chair does not raise high enough,nor adjust at all. It is also wobbly on its base. If I were not an elderly widow and had to pay someone to re-pack it and return it, I would have sent it back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best book-to-screen adaptation, 13 Aug 2011
This massive, wide-ranging book is a history book as well as a novel. I watched the TV version and wanted to learn more about Victorian London and was not disappointed.

Surprisingly it sticks very closely indeed to the televised version, and in spite of that being an easier option, being re-enacted before your eyes, it is much more gripping and realistic than that production.

A tour de force. I reserve 1 star because it is so thick that it is a difficult book to keep open when reading in bed. A hardback may be worth the extra cost.

3.0 out of 5 stars Red for danger, 13 Aug 2011
My first impression of this little tool was excellent. It has a tiny spiral brush to clean between teeth. It does this job very well indeed, is less damaging to the gums than dental sticks, and acts as an adjunct to - not instead of - floss.

However, I have sensitive teth and have found that a deal of care must be taken not to be too vigorous with it or it can aggravate sensitivity.

10-Minute Watercolours (Collins Gem)
10-Minute Watercolours (Collins Gem)

4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket perfection, 13 Aug 2011
This tiny book holds a wealth of advice, and inspiration. It shows short projects to encourage a free approach to watercolour. Small enough for a pocket it is one of the least expensive and most instructional painting books I have read.

I have deducted 1 star because Hazel Soan does rather give the impression that it is easy. Well it is for her!
