SUMMARY- I'm a really big fan of Ms. Ess's block tatted animal motifs as well, and can confidently recommend any of her books - I've loved them all. I also am always on the lookout for Dragon patterns - so it's like she created this book just for me! She's such an impressive designer!

Patterns are diagrammed, and instructions are well broken down and easy to follow. She does incorporate many advanced techniques, so I don't recommend her books for beginners, but they are definitely worth aspiring to!
