When I first saw this book on amazon.ca, my eye went straight to the middle: Marabout. It brought back many memories of my "French life" when I had any number of books by Marabout. The cover sucked me in and I gave it to myself for my birthday. This is one book that delivers. Page after page of gorgeous photography and things I would actually make -- not your usual cushion/toy/hankie-holder that seem to fill other sewing books. Complete with clear instructions (but you have to know French) and patterns.
Bravo, Marabout! Je t'aime!
