SUMMARY- This book goes into some depth on stringing technique and forms. It fascinates me how certain artwork screams 1960's and '70's to me. I think it is the colors - we've gotten blander in our color palettes since Flower Power was a thing. This book has great information on getting started, and ideas on how to be creative with it. That's timeless.
