BONUS MECHANICS RATING:Star Rating You not only get a wide variety of alphabet styles, but a lesson in how to create your own. This is yet another top shelf craft book put out by Chilton(who also published Colette Wolff's "Manipulating Fabric").

SUMMARY- There are no soft toy or doll patterns in this book - and I don't care. You always know you're going to get something amazing from Carolyn Vosburg Hall or the Chilton Book Company's old craft line - put them together and "WOW!" If you've read any other review of Mrs. Hall's books by me you know that I'm a huge fan - hence the addition of all her non-toy/soft sculpture books! Mrs. Hall's work is worth finding no matter what she does.
