Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts: An A - Z Guide with Detailed Instructions and Endless Inspiration
The first thing I'd like to say about this book is that it is extremely heavy! so bare this in mind before purchasing,especially if you have a back problem like me. It was too heavy for me to lift so my husband had to put it on the table for me. Not a plus as I like my craft books to be portable. Aside from this content wise it's nicely set out, the projects are ok but other than one or two things like the beading & soaps which I liked, I'd either seen it before or I wouldn't ever use it ,like the guilding for example. So unless you are a Martha fan, if you are a seasoned crafter it's not really a necessary addition to your craft library. Also I'd have liked to have seen more suggestions for alternative projects as to me this was really lacking especially with regards to the calligraphy section.
