Glad I got it from the library....
on January 11, 2002
While this book does have some good ideas and techniques, I was put off by the repeated and blatant promotions of the author's line of stamps -- a little too self-serving. Also, since she used only her own stamps in the project examples -- as well as a very limited color palette -- there is a disappointing sameness to the look of the samples. Most books of this type show the work of multiple artists: More variety of styles and colors would have made Kahn's book much more interesting and inspiring.
So, while I did come away with some ideas that I will use, I'm very glad that I borrowed the book from the library, rather than paying for it.
