SUMMARY- This book has been published in English, though notation is in German still. She does give the English translation for her notation, so with just a little study, it shouldn't be difficult to read. Ms. Siepmann loves organic forms and color, and has developed an impressive style of work that she teaches to anyone who wishes to learn. There is order to her chaos, but it isn't immediately apparent, and there are elements of crochet thrown in to this book to further obscure the trail.
