I love the wide variety of inspirational ideas in this book. Many of the ideas are ones that an intermediate artist would be able to replicate.

The how-to section of the book is thorough and includes many photos. Beginners would find this book very helpful as a demonstration of the techniques needed to successfully screen-print using a wide variety of techniques.
