2.0 out of 5 stars Deeply meh, 27 April 2011
I guess this is great if you're looking for skulls and brightly coloured pieces (often also with skulls). I was hoping for inspiration for a small motif to embellish a text tattoo, something crisp and modern, pretty without being hearts and roses. There was really nothing that fell into this category. The sections on animals and birds could be divided into those which were hyperrealistic, and those which were cartoony (for instance, a vomiting penguin). The flowers were almost all big, brightly coloured and old-fashioned. I hadn't expected to like everything in this book, or even the majority of designs, but I'm deeply disappointed to find that there were only one or two which even vaguely appealed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Historical inacccuracies, 14 Feb 2007
While this book IS hot and very readable, there was one major problem with it. The history of France had been so messed around with that it was more or less unrecognisable. In reality, Louis-Phillipe was the last king of France. However, he had no daughter called Marie-Amelie; that was his wife's name. In addition, he came immediately BEFORE the Second Republic and not after it. The monarch who came after the Second Republic (and overthrew it) was Louis-Napoleon. He was never styled king but EMPEROR and took the name Napoleon III when ruling. He did not have a daughter.

In addition, mentioning 'vapour trails' in the nineteenth century just made me wince. What was leaving them? Seagulls?

I've studied this period, so I'm probably more likely to knitpick. If the odd historical inaccuracy doesn't bother you, and you like hot romance, I'd recommend this to you as a good read. Otherwise, steer clear.
