Good quality printing and photos.
However, if you aren't looking to try a totally new craft and are already very accomplished in most of the book's crafts, you may find this book redundant..
inspiring. I would go through the table of contents first--to be sure that you are interested in doing these projects. It can keep you making
things for several months!
The projects included cover rotary printing, screen printing, machine sewing, hand sewing, knitting, crochet, tea dyeing, tie-dyeing, batik, marbling, appliqué, soap making, fabric painting, rag rugs (crocheted and braided), embroidery, fabric origami, brass and silk jewelry making, beading, candle making, weaving, stuffed toy making, and basketry coiling. That's a lot to pack into one book, but Corwin does a fabulous job orchestrating and unifying them.
The projects are all set out in 3 - 8 steps, just right for a beginner. But even an experienced knitter might be tempted to craft a hedgehog cat toy (ask me how I know), and I imagine the same might be said for Sian Keegan's stuffed radish toys. What a wonderful overview of many things you can make by hand!
I received a review copy of this book--see the full review on the Kangath Knits blog.
