This book has some very nice designs, but I was disappointed that there were no photographs of completed projects. I am not very familiar with the prairie style, so I would have liked getting some suggestion from the designer as to possible colors, textures, and layout. A few of the patterns have shading (10 out of 48) to suggest color layouts, but of course the design I wanted to make was not shaded (Murphy's Law I guess).
I am a fan of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the United States, as exemplified in Mission and Prairie designs. I used this book to assist me in designing tile and mosaic murals using themes from the Arts and Crafts period. With a little time, a copy machine, and some colored pencils, you can make some original designs for use in your own home or business.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed some incredibly complex patterns for stained glass and actually invented a whole new school of stained glass design. This book offers more simplified designs that still truly capture the genius of Mr. Wright. I have used a number of the patterns and may have to buy another copy because mine has become so dog-eared!
