3.0 out of 5 stars They weren't kidding when they said it was small, 31 Jan. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 10-Minute Watercolours (Collins Gem) (Paperback)
I know the write up describes this book as small, but just over 3 inch by 4 is a little too small for me. Yes you can fit it into your pocket to take out with you, but don't forget to pack a magnifying glass to read it as well.

I thought it was going to be bigger otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. Saying that, I love anything to do with Hazel Soan and think she is an amazing artist. I just think this book would have been better served in at least A5 size, then you wouldn't have to squint so much to read it.

The book does pack a good range of tips in it thought so it may be perfect for some people.

Thanks for the dimensions of the book in your review. I certainly don't want to be using a magnifying glass!

The print is small, yes. But there is a huge amount in the book; more than in many so-called "full size" books.

It's a shame the only three star review of this book is also listed as the 'most useful'. I know it sounds like a book this size wouldn't work, but clearly for a lot of people it is. My eyesight is awful and I found this book amazingly clear! It's not just a shrunken version of a big book, but formatted for the size which I find to be genuinely practical. It could have been a disaster, but instead it's limitations have made it direct, simple and accessible with the authors expert knowledge condensed into practical, usable and inspiring pages. My favourite watercolour book.

I wholly agree with you!!!!!

When stuck and trying to cut through my big ideas, this book comes along with clarity and simplicity to make painting a joy.
