I have no Greek heritage, don't speak the language and know nothing about any of the artists on this disc. I was just looking for something that would make me think of blue sea and glorious sunshine and jolly enough to encourage me to smash the washing up whilst happily flicking a tea towel around. Unfortunately, there are no sample tracks on anything I looked at so I went with the other two reviews and am sorry to say I'm very disappointed.

This book is lovely to look at and is destined to become a firm favourite. When I buy a crafting book I want to see hints, tips, information, photos, diagrams and masses of inspiration. What I usually seem to end up with is a great wodge of text at the beginning of the book detailing the entire world history of the craft (or, worse still, the author) before getting to the nitty-gritty of why I bought it in the first place. This book has very little preamble, apart from what is essential to be able to appreciate what follows, and I was deeply engrossed very quickly.

Rather than projects to tackle it offers clear information and illustrations, dangling in front of you the… Read more
