I received a copy of Handmade Tile through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Handmade Tile is not the sort of book I expected to come across when browsing art books one day. And yet it immediately caught my attention. There’s something so appealing, both about this book and about the idea of being able to craft one’s own tile.

This is a comprehensive guide designed for all skill levels. So whether or not you’ve ever done this before, as long as you have the desire to learn, then this is a book worth checking out. Forrest Lesch-Middelton’s writing is concise and easy to understand, making it perfect for beginners in particular.

There are a lot of positive things to say about this book. I was fascinated by the instructions, of course. But I also do appreciate the organization inside. The book is split into neat sections, such as how to make tile, decorating, designing a space with tiles, and even a gallery at the end (which featured some prominent artists in the field). It was exactly what I would have expected and hoped for.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
