Unfortunately the description is far from accurate "The Ultimate Body Art Book" does not describe the contents.
If you want a Henna book with henna patterns/designs I would skip this one. The book describes the history and culture of Henna but the Henna recipes in the back a very vague with no exact quantities and instructions.
If you want a book about Henna history and cultural traditions this is the book for you.
The photos and pictures in the book do not provide good henna patterns to replicate their designs and there are not many pictures.
I wanted a pattern book to help me learn the fundamentals of henna pattern designs. Which seem to be few and far between or out of print. In my opinion there are too many henna books about the history/ background of henna without any actual henna designs within the book. Some books are even called mehndi designs and do not contain any mehndi designs whatsoever. Which is extremely misleading and annoying.
Luckily I purchased the book for a good price, otherwise I would probably return it.
I think the author could have done a little better at describing how-to, but she did a supurb job of explaining why.
