wow, this is an incredibly comprehensive book on image transfer. Over 30 techniques are taught in very clearly written tutorials and the troubleshooting and fix-it tips are great pluses for when things go wrong, and they do. A couple of projects are also included. I like that several of the techniques use materials that can easily be found around the home, so anyone can immediately start creating.

This is a must-have book for anyone interested in art, collage and mixed-media.
