I bought this book because I was interested in Pique Assiette and the only other review said it was very good. Now after buying it I see that every single project has exactly the same instructions! Basically you are reading the same text over and over again and all thats changing is the photos. Take my word, save your money and buy something else.

This book does a really great job of teaching you how to create really fun projects. Simple, easy to follow instructions. The gallery section is very cool, with all kinds of great art that will spark new ideas for stuff you can create for your house and garden.Loved it!

The book covers the very basics. The projects are targeted to the weekend crafter versus the artist. Most of the pieces are quite chunky and have little quality technique with lots of grout holding the pieces together. Could be good for young people's first projects -- definitely not recommended for serious projects.
