A great book for anyone wishing to know more about mosaic. It literally covers everything and has lot of inspiring techniques and projects to try. Its a new book too, only came out in August and I have to say I am impressed with it! I have learned something every time I have had a read through. It is easy to follow and well laid out. I think it will be a book that will be on my shelves for a long time as it covers everything for beginners and experienced mosaic artists a like. It is full of useful information and I highly recommend it if you have an interest in this
