This is a wonderful book for learning to make a wide variety of mosaic tile projects. Clear, step-by-step instructions are both written and demonstrated with full-color photographs.Sixteen projects include tables, frames, jewelry, containers, floors, and walls. There are also designs for outdoor areas, as well as the kitchen & bath. Numerous pieces of other magnificent artwork are also displayed throughout the book.There are over 30 great templates featuring many designs. Some include flowers, celestial elements, a large angel & a mermaid. There are several animals including a unicorn, butterfly & dragon as well.My only wish is that a list of suppliers was included, I found some of the materials difficult to obtain.

Amazing book, I'm just getting into mosaic and have all sorts of ideas after looking through this book. A good source for a beginner, with clear instructions and enough projects to keep my going for a while.

Well presented book. All the aspects of mosaic work are presented clearly. I especially like the recommendations for products to use and why as well as sources for products. Great projects. The author/artist is clear and generous in teaching the art and skill of mosaics on a variety of surfaces. Some fun ideas that are new to me. Great book.

This is a great book for Mosaic lovers! It is very informative and gives detailed step by step instructions on creating beautiful masterpieces! I highly recommend this book!

Excellent book for the beginner as well as those having experience. Good projects, solid instructional info and great options.I have shared my copy with so many people it is worn out so I had to get another (this one).

I would recommend this book for beginners as it answers the basic questions. I intend to keep this book as there are helpful hints especially with materials required. Interesting easy as well as complex patterns.

High quality, distinct, clear designs. Take the pages out for sure. The colors will seep through. Excellent quality paper. Fascinating!

In great condition, Just a great book for ideas and was to do different things. Have fun with the book, I have.
