Lotta Prints: How to Print with Anything, from Potatoes to Linoleumby Lotta Jansdotter
Another charmer from Lotta Jansdotter, Lotta Prints covers all the details you need to start embellishing your surfaces (fabric, paper, walls, etc.) with a variety of craft processes. I'm a big fan of potato printing, as recipients of my Christmas cards will vouch for. The many fans of Jansdotter's Simple Sewing will recognize and welcome her distinctive bold-and-basic Scandinavian style.
