My Take on the Book
This was an amazing book that really brought out the art and beauty of zentangle. What I loved most was the variety in this collection and how far people working in this art form will go to extend their art beyond just on paper. This was a wonderful book and one that really opened my eyes to the beauty of this and I am still going back over and over again to look at the intricacy or the art as it truly is awe-inspiring!
