As usual by F. Rivers, a well constructed story that is hard to put down. I lent this book to a friend and she read it twice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and interesting, 30 Mar. 2015
I love this book. It is one of the few quilting books that I am reading from cover to cover, rather than browsing or just looking at the pictures.
This collection of quilts is combined with well written stories, reflections, and interviews with and about the people who made these quilts and the context in which they were made. It takes you back to the heart of quilt making where they were needed rather than just pretty. While many of the quilts featured are not beautiful in the traditional sense, they are interesting and they somehow 'become' more beautiful after gaining a greater appreciation of their history.
As a quilt artist, I am appreciating some of the quirky approaches to finding quilting solutions where the maker has faced what appears to be very limited resources. It is a refreshing window into quilt making, and challenging to think beyond the endless myriad of pattern and fabric resources that we have access to in this century. I highly recommend this book to every passionate quilter.

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful, 28 Oct. 2013

I used this to help plan our vacation to Sicily and it has been very useful in explaining areas and places to visit. It has lots of photos as usual. I also purchased the Insight Sicily guide (which is also good) and there was nothing obviously left out of the DK guide.

This is a beautiful product made of thick cotton that is wonderfully smooth. Washed and ironed it still looks good.

I haven't had the chance to wear these in-flight yet, but I've tried them on and they feel comfortable enough to wear for my 4 flight, 35 hour journey next month.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read, 5 Jan. 2013

This is a good story woven through the ministry of Jesus. A little more exciting in the first half, but that may be because if you know the bible, you already know how the second half of the story ends.

4.0 out of 5 stars weekend trip, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We used this guide for a 3-4 day trip to Helsinki last week and it was very useful. The map was clear and handy to have on arrival. It outlined the most useful places to visit and gave tips on a few not so obvious places, such as the interior of the Helsinki library. I also used it for a day trip to Porvoo and found the map helpful to guide me around and show what to see, and where to find the chocolate shop! On the negative side, the photos could be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars good read, 11 Oct. 2012

I am almost half way through this book and am really enjoying it. The topics are defined well and the writing is easy to read, which is not always the case with technical subjects. I have a background in electricity markets, so some of the material is not new to me, but I can vouch for its accuracy and clarity in explaining certain topics that are somewhat complicated.
