Once Upon a time there were 8 mosaic tales La version anglaise ! 

 

"So different from a catalogue of designs, this book shows you how to work with stone, industrial or vitreous glass, unglazed ceramics andlots of other materials through the medium of 8 mosaic projects, each one explained and illustrated step by step.

The techniques for laying tiles are varied: direct method, indirect method or direct method on mesh depending on the projects (panels,table tops or floor mosaics) and the materials selected.

With this invaluable tool, you can begin to discover your own creativity and, with great ease, turn your most treasured projects into reality by choosing the most appropriate method.
