Is a very good book! You could find right-angle and round patterns. The only thing I miss was the pictures with colours, but in general is good to start. There are basic and more complex patterns, for differents degree of difficulty.
I just finished the duck design fetured in this book. I used stained glass paints and made it for a friend. He placed it in the window above the front door and now the whole neighborhood can enjoy this easy work of art. Add some art to your home.
