Lots of useful tips to help you think outside the box, and suggestions on how to record your experiments ... There are nine projects in all, but what is striking about them is that they are relatively simple designs, but look much more complex. The beauty of these is that the basic techniques have been combined really effectively, and there are instructions given on the inspiration, the preparation and execution of the pieces ... If you are reasonably confident in basic techniques, but want to experiment in a new arena, this would be an interesting book. * Workshop on the Web *
