Mosaic Art and Style, a stunning follow-up to The Art of Mosaic Design, is a celebration of how mosaics can be integrated into our lives. Author JoAnn Locktov explores our fascination with mosaic art and illustrates how artists have crafted architectural installations as well as decorative and functional objects that have added immeasurably to living environments. Readers will enjoy seeing how mosaic art can be applied to every surface imaginable with a panoply of materials. Mosaic Art and Style tells the story of how the projects were conceived and fabricated from the artists' own points of view. This book will confirm some conceptions and shatter others. Locktov has forged special relationships with a multitude of artists, who have allowed her to feature their work in Mosaic Art and Style. Through these relationships, Locktov takes the reader into the world of the artist and gives readers a behind-the-scenes pass into the artists' workshops, where she shares their personal thoughts about the creation and inspiration that imbues their work.

Good collection of mosaic objects in various size and styles. It has very good quality photos. I wish the book is ten time thicker or better yet a CD or DVD with these pictures. Excellent book!
