This book inspires me every time I open it; I love it.
The Kindle version is shown as having colour images. It does NOT. The set-up is a little cumbersome, but that is based on the ability to change type size. You can have one OR the other, but not both. I'd rather have changeable type and uncomfortable layout personally. However, the badly contrasted and black and white images when beautiful colour photos are represented as the product are inexcusable!! Frankly, it's dishonest!
Also, when I attempt to access the Table of Contents to locate specific portions of the book (Frog Closures), my copy hangs up, freezes and sends me back to my Kindle home screen. How useful is a resource book without a TOC? Not very. If I must either A) Memorize the TOC; B) PRINT a copy of the TOC for a strictly E-Book; or C) scroll through 700+ pages of material to locate a single design.... Well, imagine THAT frustration. I purchased this book to use. Returning it is simply not an option for me.. Nor is purchasing a one hundred dollar pre-owned copy.
Poor form, Amazon! Poor form indeed!
I haven't made any of the buttons in this book, but i have read over the instructions of the majority. Honestly, i think i can make at least the easy and the moderate projects. Nancy Nehring's explanations are very clear, and easy to follow. Still, though, i would have liked more diagrams in a step-by-step way (at least for the basic styles).
The photographs are gorgeous, and they certainly do justice to the many beautiful styles of buttons depicted.
