Mosacists will delight in an in-depth survey which covers the technical, cultural and historical context for creating mosaics. Goodwin's guide takes the form of an A-Z encyclopedia of techniques and creations, covering everything from mosaic history and technical details on mosaic creation to the entire design process. An incredible pick for artists at all levels of talent, working in the medium.
It wasn't clear to me when I bought this book that it was only an encyclopedia. I believed I would be getting techniques, info about materials and some designs. That did not turn out to be the case. I may pick this book up on rare occasions but not as frequently as I would have liked.
Perfect for any artist. If you are a mosaic artist, your library should not be without this book. You cannot go wrong with any book by Elaine M. Goodwin.Laura K. Aiken[...]
