From the Author
Learn all the basics of Zentangle, plus tips on designing your own tangles (patterns). This book is filled with 52 pages of great ideas, Zentangle artwork, tips and a gazillion new Tangles (about 100). Get inspiration from 12 artists - all completely addicted to this amazing artform.
In case you haven't heard, Zentangle is a relaxing form of meditation that uses repetitive pattern drawing. Basically, it's really fun, addictive and teaches creative confidence. It's hard to explain, but really amazing!
This book gives the basics, then jumps into the paradox of relaxing chaos. Yes. It is very hard to describe Zentangle! I designed this book to be a lot like one of my classes, with ideas and tips everywhere. But you can tune me out and just go for the patterns, that is just fine. :-)

Even if you are an artist and

Zentangle is for you! Learn to
focus, relax your mind and boost
your creative confidence.

-I thought this book would be a learners guide to the art of 'tangling'. The description seemed to imply that. I expected more instructions and detailed steps
**You need to know a bit about tangling to get full value from this book. I don't think you need another book but just watching a quick you tube video will get you upto speed. Please see the comments to my original post for loads of links.**
-Instead this book is more of a compilation of work which is admittedly very beautiful. How to get there is still a mystery to me.
**I now look at the book as a source of ideas and inspirations but I can now see how they were created. **
-The book is not very logically laid out so I would not recommend it for total beginners at all who are looking for a step by step approach. For example the author spends time talking about tools needed and then just jumps into showing you images of tangles with no guidance on how to start at all. I found that frustrating and I struggled to make head or tail of what was going on.
**I maintain that if you are a total beginner and have no clue what on earth a tangle is, its better to look at a basic website first before attempting the tangles in this book. One website has a template of squares you can download free which greatly helps you start [...]
This totally changed my perspective and now the book looks quite logical**
However if you want to add to your collection of ideas or get inspiration, this book might be good. But you need to know the basics first.Read more ›
This book is a bit more 'sophisticated' than the Zentangle series. The patterns are more complex, the drawings more artistic. If 'basic' books on drawing techniques are generally a bit too basic for you, I would recommend this book over the Zentangle series.
If you are insecure about your drawing skills, or are easily overwhelmed by a book filled to the brim with ideas and possibilies, I would recommend Zentangle Basics or Zentangle 2, in stead of, or together with, this book.
This book does give you the basics, but does not dwell on it too much. It quickly goes onto the next step: more complex patterns and designs and what you can do with all of these lovely patterns - and you can do A LOT with them.
