    What a beautiful book!

    Creative Titling is a real pleasure to just look at as well as read. I greatly appreciated the many gorgeous and helpful illustrations as well as the informative text. A wonderful surprise to find a technical book that was almost a work of art too. Thanks, Diannah Morgan, we look forward to more books with your style and flair.
