SUMMARY- This isn't a how-to book, but rather a lavishly photographed history of the teddy bear. I don't normally go for teddy bear books, but got this one in a lot of others I bought off e-bay - and wasn't disappointed. There's a lot of fantastic information in this book and the photography is top notch. Even if you're a teddy bear maker, this book would be very useful in helping to avoid reinventing the wheel(so to speak).
