Tells & shows you just about everything you'd ever want to know about Pyrography. Wood burning art. Projects are well described, patterns are clear and instructions plain. You would do well to have this in your craft library.

This book would be excellent for someone just starting out and for someone with more experience looking for advanced information. Have it open next to you as you learn and it would be almost impossible to go wrong.
