Reviews - What do customers think about Color on Color: Elegant Designs to Stitch (Simply Stitched series)?
Color on Color by Janet Haigh Sep 7, 2005
From its striking cover, through to the stunning photography, and the colourful and informative step by step illustrations, this book is exciting and inspirational. The projects are contemporary and stylish but well explained and illustrated. The colours, as the title suggests, are bright and vibrant . The book is well laid out in easy to follow projects, with additional technical help in the form of line drawings at the end of each chapter. This is one of the most exciting craft books I have come across for a long time.
I expect better from Interweave Apr 1, 2005
Simple is definitely the word to describe this book. The photography is gorgeous and the pictures take up most of the space. The projects are contrived and poorly explained for beginners. A mix of retro hippie/today's young hip designs. There isn't one project that interests me nor is there any inspiration to be taken from these designs. I expect better books from Interweave Press. This one is a disappointment.
