I was hoping for more modern, clean design. If you like collage out of the 1980s with lots of Mauve, gray and black, this is your book. the examples are overly cluttered and are not very creative. returned it the day after i received it

I have been a fan of Susan's amazing work since I first saw it in Somerset Studio. This book far exceeded my expectations for it's content, format, illustrations, extent of art projects covered. Then she is ever so generous to share a gallery with talented diverse artists as well! Go buy this book! Truly inspirational! Thanks Susan for this gift!!

As a novice, I'm motivated to get moving on a project. The illustrations are wonderful but I need to read a bit more and get basic supplies together. I love to experiment and this book has me ready to go. I've been looking for more resource books in this area and I think this is one of the best on the subject.
