5.0 out of 5 stars Seven out of Four!!!!, 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first coat that I recieved was rather smaller than the measurements I had provided, and I was very disappointed to have to return it because the coat was of a wonderful quality and was very well cut and stylish, but far too tight to be comfortable. However, the A Z Team were very patient and persevering and helped me to identify the size I needed, and in due course a second replacement coat arrived that fitted perfectly. Happily it was of a similar good quality Nappa leather as the first one, soft, supple and silky to the touch. It is a classical style, a timeless smart casual, great with jeans but also right with more formal work wear. Very versatile and classy, I'm pleased with my choice as it will serve me well for years to come. I don't often buy clothing on-line because of sizing issues, and was quite careful with placing this order, but it was a style colour and quality I had not been able to find in the shops. The coat is great, and so is the value for money, and I'm a very happy bunny, but the credit is all due to the A Z Team whose customer service has been truly 5 star! Thanks a lot you guys!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, 16 July 2015

Haven't ried any recipes yet but the range and variety is impressive. My Iranian husband was spluttering gleefully over some long forgotten favourites from his childhood, so I guess it won't be long before I get to cook some of those dishes for him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Le Creuset!!, 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent build quality and very handsome too. Very heavy, but a useful size and shape, both for stove top dishes and oven bakes and roasts.Soak in hot soapy water for an easy peasy clean up. In my view these products outshine Le Creuset in every way!

Great casserole dish. Big and very heavy, but useful and good looking. Should last for years if I don't drop it! Easy to clean if you soak with hot water and detergent for a while. Beats Le Creuset for value for money, looks and durability.

These are OK, but watch out when stacking them. If you stack while they're warm and/or damp after washing up. they do sometimes stick .... and they're not easy to unstick!!

Used these for 2 weeks last Autumn and they seem to be pretty adequate. They're tough enough for light cooking and easy to clean and to store, compact and well designed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather old fashioned and repetitive, there are many more worthwhile watercolour books out there. I regret spending money on it, and couldn't even struggle through to the end of the book! Probably good back in the day, but my advice is to save up for a Joseph Zbuvic or David Curtis or Alvaro Castagnet book instead!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another example of talentless art tutors hiding out with a comfortable sinecure. I was very disappointed with this book. It offers the serious student of draughtsmanship little in the way of practical guidance, and the work shown is certainly very "contemporary" but is ugly, unattractive unappealing and amateurish. If you are looking for some serious instruction on drawing techniques go to Juliette Aristedes Classical Drawing Atelier. This Drawing Projects book might be worth browsing to see what is currently being lauded in our art college circuits as being of merit, and it does offer a breadth of different examples of work, but it it is lightweight and ultimately disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among The Best!!!, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In need of refreshing my distant days of art college classes, I invested in this book. I can't recommend it too highly for folks like me whose art education was some 40 odd years ago. Although i have never stopped practising as an artist, my very stressful job as Head of Art at a Grammar school combined with running a home and commuting meant that for many years I had little time or energy left for my creative personal work. This book has not only regenerated my enthusiasm for and excitement about painting it has also taken me a stage further along the path to great achievement with new techniques and insights. The illustrations of contemporary work are superb: elegant, sensitive, delicate, powerful, moving, ... in fact nothing short of sublime. The balance of background history, practical exercises and sensible advice is compelling, and even the intelligent novice should be able to make good progress developing their skills using this book. One of the best examples of art instruction in book form. Up there with Richard Schmidt Kevin McPherson and Ian Roberts. Good bibliography at the back.
