Love the spiral binding and excellent text/photo/illustration lay-out

Can't speak highly enough about what a great resource this book is! Not too big in size and lies flat on the table to make following the beading diagrams comfortable - no need to prop the page open. The easy to follow beading diagrams are either full colour large and crisp drawings, or step-by-step photographs. Content is logically laid out and sprinkled through the pages are gorgeous photos of beaded items to act as inspiration - I already know I am going to be studying the stunning clutch on the title page so that I can try something similar.
All around extremely well done reference and learning title that I am very glad I bought!
There are NO projects in this book so if you are looking for a book with projects as well as instruction, look for the wonderful Dorothy Wood books, especially if you are taking your first steps into beaded embroidery. But then you should purchase this book for the encyclopaedic stitch guide to take your embroidery to the higher levels - if this book doesn't demonstrate the stitch it hasn't been invented yet.
This book is a definite must-have if you are at all interested in beautifully executed beaded embroidery pieces.
