complete is the operative word!,
This review is from: The Complete Pebble Mosaic Handbook (Hardcover)
This beautifuly illustrated book contains pictures and ideas from all over the world. The book is organised into three well designed sections, covering first the "core techniques", then "around the world" and lastly a "gazetteer of design ideas".
The first section shows you everything Maggy has learned about making these beautiful artworks over the years and how to apply that to your own designs. Secondly Maggy shows you her own work, and that of all the other artists she has contact with from over the world; including ancient works from China, Europe and America. Then Lastly all the various design ideas are collated into an easy to browse section which is invaluable as a work reference.
The appendices contain contact details for all the other artists who are featured, details on where to find all the hundreds of works featured in the book as well as an index.
Maggy has Generously given a great many artists' work exposure here as well as giving the rest of us everything we would need to begin making our own designs except the pebbles.
This is a lovely book to have, whether on the coffee table or in the workshop.
