Pillows of many styles fill these colorful pages. Tailored, country, ethnic, child-oriented, or wild; painted, stenciled, embroidered, corded, tasseled, buttoned, or rug-hooked--the ideas are varied and the techniques diverse. Most of the shapes are fairly standard (square and neckroll); it's the interesting decorative embellishments that make them unusual. Lots of how-to color photos, more than a dozen projects, and an extensive overview of good-looking pillows by numerous contributors provide ideas and practical information. --Amy Handy
