Library Journal Review

Mosaics are enjoying a surge of popularity among artists and landscapers, and both of these books provide ideas for outdoor projects. Outdoor Mosaic offers a selection of photos and descriptive explanations of projects in different settings done by the authors' London-based studio, Mosaic Workshop. These are mostly large, complex, professionally designed and executed works. No projects are included, but there is a chapter of technical information. Pebble Mosaics provides step-by-step projects for paths, planters, and decorative objects made from natural pebbles, shells, and shards. Many involve mortaring the mosaic to an already existing feature such as a birdbath. Outdoor Mosaic will inspire home crafters and professionals alike, while Pebble Mosaics will appeal more to beginners. Both of these books would be good additions to garden collections needing more material on mosaics. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
