The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools & Techniques is a comprehensive volume written by Susan Pickering Rothamel and published by Lark Crafts, which gives an overall look at the field of card making and documents the tools and techniques to create greeting cards. The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools & Techniques is set up alphabetically with every term connected with card making explained. I really enjoyed the frequent artist profiles that are associated with a specific term that the artist specializes in. They tell a little about their expertise with that particular medium and show several examples of their work. These interesting spotlights also gave the encyclopedia a more personal feel. Beautiful, vivid photos of cards fill every page, where they are used as examples of different card making methods. Die cutting, gilding, embossing and embellishing are just a few of the many, many effects demonstrated in The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools & Techniques. The book also includes some helpful extras, like a list of holidays around the world, quotes to add to your cards and places to purchase supplies. The Encyclopedia of Greeting Card Tools & Techniques offers both the beginner and the more experienced card maker an opportunity to learn about all the possible greeting card techniques from the basic to the more intricate.
I have both the Kindle and Nook applications on my iPad. I have found the Kindle handles graphics like the ones in this book very well with great maneuverability from page to page. The Nook application is not good with graphics. The display is not clear. Moving from page to page is time consuming. I am not happy with this purchase at all.
