Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Swedish author Skote presents 43 utterly charming and clever concrete projects using, e.g., decorative plates as molds, colored concrete, different textures, and other elements to encourage creativity. Alan Wycheck's recent Concrete Crafts, featuring better instruction, would be a good companion to this fun if overly simplified book.
