Of the three books in this series, this was my least favorite, although I still found several prints that I would frame. Part of the problem is that much of Contemporary art doesn't lend itself to the 8x10 prints in this book - you really need to fill a wall with the geometric or tonal designs so that you can get lost in them. I don't think they work as well as a grouping or part of a gallery.

That said, the idea is still great, and the series would not have been complete without this book. Part of my lack of enthusiasm for the book is probably due to my personal style, which meshed better with the Eclectic and Traditional books in the collection.

If you have a traditional or quirky home with a definite sense of style, I would definitely get the other two books before you try this one, but if your style is contemporary, or if you are choosing your home's style and aren't sure what direction you want to take, this could be a valuable addition to your decorating arsenal.

As an aside, I found out about this collection from DIY magazine, which featured the Mills' home in their Summer 2014 issue. The home is also featured on their blog, The Handmade Home. Incidentally, I don't really like their style, but I DID really like these books. So if you saw the home and it wasn't your style, but you were still curious about the books (or checked out the blog after seeing the books), I wouldn't use that as a deciding factor on whether or not to purchase the books.

Ordered this and it arrived in a timely fashion. There are a number of prints, all on good quality paper suitable for framing. Many of them are nice enough but I ended up choosing to return the book simply because enough of them wouldn't have worked in my home.
Because it was marketed as "contemporary" I thought some of them might be a little more on the modern side, but I personally did not find them to be as such.

These are great because they all fit the same size frame, so you can buy as many frames or as few as you want and swap out the artwork in the book as your heart desires. I actually have three different locations for the artwork galleries so I can just switch the framed artwork from place to place to make it look fresh and interesting. Fun to display. I have all their books.

I absolutely love this! You cannot beat the value for the price. Over 40 unique prints that can be easily swapped in your gallery walls to add a fresh perspective. I would definitely recommend this to friends who are looking for a great variety of art & prints at an very affordable price. I love how they can be easily mixed and matched.

Such a good idea! Used this to create a gallery wall, and it looks great! Not fine art by any stretch of the imagination, and you probably won't like every picture in the book, but some are very pretty! Even if you only use 2 or 3, it's still cheaper than buying prints on etsy or zazzle!
