This is a large pamplet style book, but WOW!!! it is full of some of the best patterns and ideas that I have seen for a long time. The patterns are simple with easy to follow instructions, but the finished projects look like you spent hours making them. It doesn't call for expensive hard to find materials and is perfect for begining beaders to expert beaders. The patterns can be easily altered for any color combination or style of bead. I recommend this book to anyone who loves beading and is looking for fantastic projects. Sometimes the simplest books have the best information!
