Review by goldenmoon
One of the best organized of the numerous similar books out there. You can actually use the book to learn some of the techniques. Though I have looked through this book many times, it is still visually exciting.

What an inspiring book for mixed media artists. Each letter is illuminated by a different artist using everything from fabric to newspaper. Every time I open the book I'm inspired to create something of my own.
