SUMMARY- This book was originally a 1967 German book, translated a year later into English and distributed in Great Britain and the States - you can tell it was originally translated for a British audience because of the spelling of "mould"! This book is a great example of "you can always find something in even the smallest book". I'd never seen nutshell candles before and thought it was a cool idea - and you can see from the cover that it shows some interesting ways to decorate the outside of column candles.
