First of all, let me just say that the CD-rom, which includes some of Heather's most popular patterns, is worth the price of this book alone (and then some).

If that's not enough, there are also NUMEROUS tear-out pages of her prints that you can use to get started crafting right away.

Next, there is a great tutorial on how to make your own prints using Adobe Photoshop, as Heather generously shares her techniques.

Finally, the cornerstone of this book is the long list of inspired projects. I found the paper-based projects to be my favorite, and I can't wait to get started making journals, stationary, notepads, and sketchbooks. The wrapping paper is nice but I am going to take it a step further and print the patterns on heavier cardstock to make fold-together boxes, or use it on printer paper to cover a pre-made box. I also wish there were a template for postcards, which I think would be super cute.

The sewing patterns seem oddly out of place, and I don't think the swim cover-up, apron, chemise or napkins really add anything to the book. You can find these patterns anywhere. The dishtowels work though because Heather sets them up for you to print out a coordinating set of four with monograms- all you have to do is hem- that are perfect for gift-giving! I have to confess though I wouldn't have minded a pattern for the cute skirt she wears in the Introduction.

The book also includes a bamboo tray, wallpaper (lots of possibilities for this when you find out how easy it is to make your own peel-and-stick contact paper), toddler cover and duvet (for boys, but you can make one for girls- Princess and the Pea, perhaps?), rice paper lanterns, shower curtain, childrens' stool, house of cards, votive holders, wall hanging and vinyl-wrapped tablecloth.

Not only does this book contain very highly prized images made available in formats and with permissions that allow for uploading and printing onto multiple substrates, the beautifully presented materials are really inspiring and I am already thinking of ways of designing my own patterns and projects drawing on these materials. The book is a paperback but that is a little misleading -- it's actually a very thick, luxurious cardstock and a large, magazine-sized book. It's more like a heavyweight cousin of a fine art/culture magazine like Cabinet than it is like a regular paperback book. Gorgeous stuff, wonderfully presented, unbeatable price.

I am a huge fan of Heather Ross, and bought the book sight unseen. It's like being "blinded by the designer label" for fabric geeks. But it does not disappoint! After ripping open the package, I'll admit I was a little bummed that it wasn't a thick, heavy books stuffed with a pocket for patterns and tons and tons of pages. Upon further inspection, it's relatively thin because everything I expected is in the back on a DVD (phew!).

Did I say everything? Yes, everything. (Well, almost. I did not see the Mendocino seahorses available as a .jpg.) The 50+ designs alluded to in the title are 32 .jpg and .pdf images of her previously published and out of print designs, free for you to use. There's a graphic index in the back for you to check and see what you're getting in case you're some kind of freak who would only purchase it for that one fabric and not like the rest. You can upload the images at Spoonflower and have the fabric all over again, or print them professionally as wallpaper, even make stationery out of them. She gives directions on how to do all of these in the projects section of the book. still can't get over how generous (and unprecedented?) this is. Her beloved and out of print fabrics have been going for $20 a fat quarter on Etsy... but no longer. (Now I can stop side-eyeing those gorgeous mermaids in Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson's Supernova Quilt for being out of print and out of reach.)

As for the projects, they are not anything novel. Tea towels, votive holders, nightgown, Mod Podge projects-nothing groundbreaking here. But that's not the point. The point of the projects in the book is to showcase beautiful ways to use her images. It's not called how to sew or make stuff, it's called Heather Ross PRINTS.

I'm a huge Heather Ross fan, so when I found out about this book I immediately pre-ordered it and have been eagerly awaiting it's arrival all summer. It finally came in yesterday's mail and I'm totally smitten by it. First of all, the book is gorgeously produced and the project ideas are really wonderful (I can't wait to make the dishtowels)--but my favorite part is the disc which is included with the book. It is chock-full of Heather's beautiful artwork and she has given all of us folks permission to use it however we'd like. What an incredibly generous gift she has given to us. I've already used the disc to create some very special note cards and my mind has just been spinning with so many other ideas for how to use it. If you like Heather's art and you like to create stuff then you will be sooooooooooo happy with this book. I highly recommend it.
