I also own this book (and the other SBA book, the Botanical palette) and can find nothing bad to say about it. The illustrations are beautiful and inspiring. I love it.

I have it as well, bought on your recommendation, Katherine and never regretted. I should work my way through the projects because I don't think I'm ever going to have time to do the course.
