Moser's skill and experience really shine through in this book. It is effective, and quite enjoyable to read. There are good practical instructions mixed with those intangibles of producing creative work that anyone who has tried will have struggled with.

Moser does a good job of providing useful advice (geared towards the beginner) while showing examples, and leaving room for each person to find their own preferences. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wish I could find a reasonably priced copy
