I have tried this form of beading on quilts and fabric before but was not satisfied with the results. This book is lavishly illustrated and laid out in format that makes it easy to understand his overall design approach. His fundamental techniques are easy to understand and execute. What I appreciated the most was his unique ability to help you through the process so you can conceptualize it for yourself and design your own project. It pays to really read this one. The author is extraordinarily good at leading you to visualize and create your own design concepts and it really does work. I highly recommend this for anyone who truly wants to learn this craft.
I took a beading class from Thom several years ago, so I was really looking forward for his new book. I was not disappointed - the book is great.
Don't waste your money. This is not the print version. This reads and looks like a cheesy "free" ebook. I'm very disappointed. I've seen the original print book and this is not it! What a waste of money!
I love this book. The photos are beautiful, the diagrams are clear, and I am going to buy one for a friend. This book is worth your investment!
