SUMMARY- You get brief instruction for a LOT of different techniques, but little to no illustration. There are a few photos scattered(widely scattered) throughout. This is the oldest book I have on starting a candlemaking business, and has more interest for me as an artifact of the '50's than as a useful guide. I still appreciated it.
