2.0 out of 5 stars Not much depth., 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Art Fundamentals (Hardcover)
Rather disappointing - I had hoped to find out more about composition, shadows and depth perception. Nothing new here and very sparsely covered. Except anatomy, taken from known sources and re-exploited over 50 pages. Lots of examples from artists- which, lets face it, is not what the book was suppossed to be about

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Must have., 26 Nov 2009
Excellent patternmaking book. Follow the clear instructions and you will be able to design anything. For the price of 5 Burda's, you'll never have to buy a useless dressmaking magazine ever again because you'll be able to design it yourself. You will need to appply yourself and be acurate and you will be rewarded with a perfectly fitting article of clothing. All aspects of patterndesigning are covered, even vital information on how to design knitwear.I was a bit wary about ordering such a pricy book but I will certainly advise everyone who dabbles in sewing/pattermaking/changing/designing to buy this book. DVD included. 803 pages full of information you have always wanted know - or never knew you needed to know! I would prefer metric but I am so glad this book is mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 Nov 2009
I bought this book because the reviews were favourable. Very disappointing. A lot about stitching seams we never use anymore and very little about actual sewing. Expecting a sewer to sew a whole dress lining explained by 3 tiny drawing is ridiculous.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off, 19 Feb 2009
ISBN:0658000748 The Ultimate French Review and Practice: Mastering French Grammar for Confident Communication (Uitimate Review and Reference Series)]I advise you to buy this book instead of the Essental Reprise because
this is exactly the same book only much better because it has the answers to the excercises which is essential in home studies and this is exactly what the Essential Reprise lacks!
If you have some knowledge of the french language, this is a very good book to continue you studies with. I picked up french just by talking and desperately felt the need to learn the grammar: this book is good!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could ber better, 17 Feb 2009
I thought it would be better. If you read any of Stephen Clarke's books ( A year in the Merde) you will end up with more information than this rather little book. It's a bit like trying to read a dictionary. After a while it gets boring.
