3.0 out of 5 stars Dirty July 30 2013
By Gil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was smudged over approximately 30% with a black substance. It did come off with some moderately heavy duty wiping off. It left my hands dirty :^(
2.0 out of 5 stars Designs small and of variable reproduction quality Aug. 17 2014
By Lila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had hoped that the designs here would be useful for stencilling. Though the designs have variety and look authentic, they were not reproduced in either the size or copy quality that could have made this collection a more useful reference and design tool.
3.0 out of 5 stars But the pictures are small and the quality of the graphics poor. Sept. 4 2014

Lots of pictures, lots of ideas. But the pictures are small and the quality of the graphics poor.
