Library Journal Review

This is a handy guide to the materials and techniques of designing and laying mosaic tiles in both indoor and outdoor settings. Well illustrated with color photographs throughout, the "A to Z of Techniques" section has step-by-step instructions. Finished mosaics are pictured in the "Gallery" section. Workshop set-up and safety tips are included. A good basic reference for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
