    Garden of Delight!

    What a lovely book! Filled with inspiration for projects yet to be done, but even more importantly this book is so beautiful to look at that if I do not complete a "garden" of my own I am more than happy to peruse this book over and over again. This book will find a special place in my home for constant viewing pleasure and inspiration....

    DONT BUY THIS e-book!!!

    I bought this as an e-book as I wanted to add a art collage book to my Nook Color library. The text is fine but I also wanted good quality color art examples. The art is SO SMALL you cant see it! Pages with art and text are so small you cant even read the text. This never should have been released as an ebook! Authors & B&N should be ashamed! I asked for a refund as soon as Igot it.
