|Must-Have Resource for the Budding Bead Tycoon|
The book is illustrated by Emily Martin and Jen Skelley. The hand-drawn black and white cartoon illustrations are simple and charming, just like the handcrafts they illustrate. The headings are clear and relevant, making it easy to find pertinent information again and again, even after you've read the book from cover to cover. Even the shape of the book is pleasing. It's almost square.
I usually hate instruction manual-type books, but this book reads more like a novel. I read it from cover to cover, and have referred back to one section or another many times since. I would definitely recommend this book to other budding handcrafts tycoons.
