This book offers some fairly nice micro-mosaic ideas. However, there are other projects that don't seem to apply to "micro" at all, even though they do present some interesting ideas.The biggest complaint I have regarding this book is the printing quality - it is terrible! Text and photos are fuzzy! In this respect it was a real disappointment in comparison to the other mosaic books that I have (which are eye-candy!).
I looked all over for a book on Micro Mosaics. No others were found. There are ton's on mosaics but Micro is it's own specialty. I will use this book often.References in the book may be out of date but that happens with any printed document.I recommend this to anyone who is interested in MICRO Mosaics.
There are not many books on this particular subject. I expected more detail on the process. There are more ways to do micro mosaics that are not mentioned in this book. Most of what she tells us in the book, I figured out by surfing the Internet.
I bought this book to add to my mosaic book collection as a mosaic artist, but I felt it was really just the same skills as large mosaics jut pared down. There were a few interesting projects, but I feel micro mosaicking may not be my thing and I'll stick with making larger mosaics.
I LOVED THIS BOOK ALOT AND GAVE GREAT INFO, BUT I WANTED TO LOCATE A PRODUCT THAT WAS BEING USED AND THE INFO THAT WAS GIVEN...LEAD ME TO A DEAD END. THAT REALLY DISAPPOINTED ME BECAUSE I REALLY WANTED THAT INFO.THE BOOK HAS WONDERFUL INFORMATION ABOUT GLASS & TILES WITH DIFFERENT APPOACHES. BOOK IS 5 STARS
Easy to read with great color photos. I would recommend this to anyone who is curious about micro mosaic art.
