I originally borrowed this book from our local library and used it to create the blackwork chessboard, which is gorgeous.
The instructions are very clear and most enjoyable. This book is excellent for those new to blackwork and includes 48 suggested 'fillings' as well as a few borders. There are little samples to create too. Like I mentioned, the chessboard is gorgeous and fun to make.
My 'issue' with this copy from Amazon is the shoddy quality of the product. It's not much thicker than a magazine cover and the paper quality throughout is poor. Very disappointing as this copy is actually for a birthday present. I am contacting the publishers to give my comments about this, although it appears to have been printed by Amazon. I wouldn't mind but I paid only slightly less than the cover price. Not good Amazon, tut tut
