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.
