I liked the explanation of how she took inspiration from paintings, murals, alterpieces, etc. and adapted the designs, colours etc. Her colour choices are beautiful and the photographs do them, and the original source material, justice. The garments themselves are not to my taste (most are quite boxy and/or busy), but there are great ideas here that could be adapted into more flattering items.
Why publishers/authors choose to include basic knitting instructions in books like this eludes me, as beginning knitters are not going to be able to tackle these designs (stranded colourwork, intarsia, steeks).
