Classic Mosaic - Designs and Projects inspired by 6000 Years of Mosaic Art
From the cover onwards this has to be one of the most beautiful books on mosaics currently before the public.
In Classic Mosaic Elaine M. Goodwin describes in great detail the why-and-how of 16 projects, inspired by such masterpieces as the Warka Pillars of Iraq, an Eretria pebble floor, the Galla Placidia Mausoleum, the Cordoba Mosque, an Aztec serpent, and the Albert Memorial.
The excellent photographs demonstrate not only her consummate craftsmanship but also why she is one of Britain's leading mosaic artists - her use of gold alone is enough to make your mouth water.
No wonder Elaine is President of the British Association for Modern Mosaic
