Format:Paperback
This book is great! Betty Krull has such a clear and well-expressed vision of color! Even if you are not into rug-hooking, this book is worth looking at. It deals with the concept of color and design, and can be applied to many mediums beyond rug-hooking. You won't be sorry if you purchase this book!
