Book review

The ultimate mosaic encyclopedia arranged A-to-Z for easy reference with clear text, colour photography of finished work - includign the best art mosaic in the world today. The entries cover mosaic history, solid technical information, including various techniques of mosaic-making (traditional and modern), the equipment and materials needed, the design process and sources of inspiration. The technical entries are packed with invaluable hints and tips, borne of years of experience from a leading international mosaic artist. Historical entries are also included for full reference. The book is well illustrated with over 150 photographs of the finished objects, close-up details wherever necessary, line drawings and step-by-step photographs that demonstrate the techniques used with great clarity. It is a thorough reference source that should be used by all mosaicists whatever their level of expertise, whether working at home on small pieces or in the studio, working on major commissions. The book covers: - Materials, from vitreous glass to mirror tiles, broken china and gold leaf - Workspaces, from a small area of a home to large studios - Basic tools - Design, which ranges from rudimentary to advanced, taking in themes, colour and texture. - History of the craft - Cutting and laying techniques - Fixing techniques and bases - Finishing techniques
