      Thanks for the reminder CC! (Although I’m a little perturbed at an EDITOR’s use of “art principals” – say what?!)

  • Jim

    I was so thrilled to read this wonderful book when I received it.Kass has a lovely relaxed style about everything she writes and does.Must be the Aussie in her.Now I will certainly upset some people about one subject about Zentangles that appears very early in the book but I wholeheartedly agree with Kass and was so pleased to see it written for all to see.It refers to the ownership of tangles.Her views are so true.
    It’s a great book and the way it opens one’s eye to various applications of tangling and the use of various materials other than the pen is fantastic.One of the best books I have in my collection and will be certainly well utilised.Buy it and see for yourself.

  • I am absolutely overwhelmed to read these lovely comments about my book. You are all VERY kind and I am deeply touched and appreciative.
    Kass xx

  • Kass hall

    You’re so kind Diane. THANKYOU so much and enjoy tangling!
