The over use of massive cheap clipart instead of decent colour pictures takes up half of the pages and makes it look cheap and nasty. there aren't even any pictures of the team. If you strip out all the stuff that most people know anyway then there is little of any substance in this book. and it wasn't exactly cheap either. Give it a miss.
Very disappointed with this book, in the title and the description it says “A make do and mend guide to caring for the things you love”. The book does give a few tips on how to care and repair odd items in a few disciplines, but very basic. Almost as if written for children! There are no illustrations on how to repair or care for beloved items, only some very poor black and white drawings of eg an apron, tape measure, which look like they have been downloaded from a clip art site.
Most of the book is taken up with projects undertaken by the experts, but even these are not illustrated to show before and after.
I wouldn’t even call this book a “coffee table book” .
I don’t care that this book is not glossy and fancy, what I am disappointed in is that it has no real substance to it and therefore no real use.
