A Step Forward in Interior Design
Oh dear... my first book review and I can't make it a good one. This 60 page e-book has color pictures on the front cover and a color picture of the author on the last page but is otherwise entirely in black and white. The only illustrations in the book are poor quality pencil drawings and the general look of the book is amateurish. Page after page of solid black text is very hard to read and I found my attention quickly wandering.
That said, it is a different approach to the usual decorating book and focusses mainly on the planning and budgetting aspects of home decor rather than the 'how to' so would appeal to someone who enjoyed making a real project out of their decorating and enjoyed making lists.
Not really my sort of book and I have asked for a full refund as promised by the author.
