    Fascinating I've seen pebble mosaics at the Alhambra in Spain and loved it then Maggy Howarth is an English craftsman and artist who studies and creates pebble mosaics both geometric patterns and pictorial In this book she gives some how tos and hints but the best part is the pictures of existing mosaics around the world not just hers Some date back to the ancient Greeks Highly recommended I would love to have a copy of this book and certainly plan to re read it some time
