It is always exciting to get an email from Frances Lincoln Limited asking if I would be interested in reviewing a book due to be released. This time it was The Crafted Hour written by Louise Curley with photographs by Jason Ingram.
Louise Curley, also wrote The Cut Flower Patch, a book I reviewed in February 2014.
I like books with matt textured covers, which this one has. It is a comfortable size also, measuring 24cms (9.5″) by 19cms (7.5″). It is fully of stylish projects inspired by nature in a good font size with detailed and interesting photographs.
This is a book not only fully of 50 craft ideas, with step-by-step instructions using flowers and twigs from your garden and the hedgerows, it also covers lots of other things such as key plants, themes, growing plants and saving seeds. A useful full book not only for handicraft ideas. It’s like following a recipe book with ingredients, detailed photos to follow so you know what you are making is supposed to look like whilst making it and a photo of the finished product.
With Christmas coming up this book would make a very welcome present.
