Review quote

"Michael Johannes Ochs...gives more than ample explanation of the steps involved, including diagrams of chemical changes; he likewise includes practical information about the process today...[a] handsome little book." "[W]ell written...includes many good photos of completed works...highly recommend." "The book Tadelakt is an excellent resource for discovering this old art. Filled with great pictures and laid out in an orderly way, the book walks you through the process. The book also has a great introduction to the Moroccan culture that surrounds the wall plaster, showing they are deeply connected."
