Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kuchinsky, whose design firm specializes in custom-designed decorative accessories, provides basic instructions for creating floorcloths. She begins with advice on selecting a color scheme, the materials needed, preparation and care of the canvas, and a review of decorative methods used in the creation of floorcloths. The 15 projects are labeled simple, intermediate, and advanced and are described with well-illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions. A resource list of U.S. suppliers is provided, an element lacking in Kathy Cooper and Jan Hersey's The Complete Book of Floorcloths (LJ 5/15/97). Purchase wherever there is an interest.
