SUMMARY- I'm a big fan of Martha Ess' work. Her designs are adorable, imaginative and easy to distinguish - i.e., nothing generic about them! She gives good instructions on block tatting techniques, and great color photos of each project. Her written instructions are well broken down and easy to follow, and you get a wonderful variety stuffed into 32 pages. You can't get better than that.
