this is a really nicely presented book - lovely pictures, very easy to understand - great for someone who knows absolutely nothing about printing methods... sadly it doesn't give you much info on how to make printing materials yourself... for example - in the "rubber stamp printing" section the first thing you're told to do is go out and buy a rubber stamp and some paper. the screen printing section is the most detailed, but again you're told to go and buy screen-filler liquid and a pre-made screen. if you know absolutely nothing about printing methods and have no idea how to use a rubber stamp effectively - buy the book. it's very pretty. however if you already know how to make your own stamps and stencils and would like to know about more complicated printing methods i'd look elsewhere.

This book is very basic. No real in depth useful info on printmaking techniques. There are far better books on printmaking available. Also the text is white out of a pale grey background which makes it unreadable in part. Lotta is a talented printmaker but this book does not do her work justice.

Very basic information and probably wouldn't recommend it for anyone wanting anything other than a quick flick through for some inspiration.

This is a fantastic, easy to follow book with realistic projects. I often find craft books have tutorials that mean you have to spend a fortune on materials before you start but this book has a project for everyone. This is a beautifully executed book, the instructions and photos are simple, yet effective. Would definately recommend to anyone interested in printing techniques. Or anyone wanting to refresh old furniture / fabrics etc.

The book is smashing , simple , uncomplicated designs as you'd expect from a Scandinavian designer . Great for giving you a "can-do" attitude to your first or even subsequent projects. But why didn't I get the patterns and stencils that should have been included in the envelope inside the back cover ? I feel swindled !
