I teach mosaics and this would be the second most popular book. Great photos, simple to advanced ideas and easy to follow instructions.
This is a great little book for beginners with easy to understand basics of mosaics and tools. I refer to this more than any other mosaic book and I am gradually collecting many more books by these authors. Biggs and Hunkin give you the encouragement to try the new and different things. Easy to understand and a great reference.
This book has beautiful color photos and examples of mosaic designs. It has a wide variety of projects. Glad I bought it.
This is a pretty straightforward book, so the projects are tables, picture frames, candle holders, and a few strictly decorative items. The techniques section looked familiar to me, it's from another, previous, book, probably one that I had seen in the library. Anyway, the technique section is sufficient to get an adult up and running with mosaicing using broken pottery/ceramics and glass squares.My young daughters thought the projects depicted in the book were universally impressive. So we're going to do a couple of similar mosaics.All in all, good, basic book, perfect for the beginner, or someone looking for a selection of basic mosaic projects.
