More Adventures of Emilly Ladybird,
This review is from: Steampunk Apothecary (Paperback)
Like its forerunner "Steampunk Emporium", "Steampunk Apothecary" is beautifully photographed and presented and makes a great coffee table book. I enjoy Miss Ladybird's adventures and the pictures of her trophies, even if I never manage to make them - (and these do require some equipment non-pros don't usually have).
There are a great variety of projects to choose from. Among my favourites were the lollipop cravat pins, the porthole bracelet and the cravat - (lucky man who gets this!) But everything can be adapted or varied to produce something unique.
The instructions are good and clear, well set out, with helpful "extras", e.g. "Pages from the notebook" and "Mr Dickens advises" and also a glossary, resources list and notes on basic techniques.
Well done, Jema!
