      Beautiful Presentation, Disappointing Details

      I love and have used Becky Higgins Sketches for years. I have both of her previous sketch books and was excited for this one to come out so I could see fresh ideas using the older sketches.

      The book has some great points. It is well organized into sections based on the number of photos in a layout. The small, compact size makes it easy to carry without sacrificing content- the sketches and example layouts are plenty big enough for me to read. I also like that it has a spiral binding in addition to the hard binding, allowing it to lay flat on a table or desk.

      It also has some bad points. While the layouts are all new for this book, they seem very "plain" at times. I realized that Becky did them all herself for this book, but some of them do look rather rushed. Also, and this is the biggest gripe I have with the book, it does not include photo size information for most of the sketches. Through the years, Becky's sketches in CK magazine have evolved from not having size information to including it, and I was hoping that size information would be added to all the sketches for this book. It seems that this detail would not have taken much time and would have tremendously added to the book's value.

      Overall, I do like this book, but if you already have Becky's previous two books it doesn't really add anything new.

      Slightly disappointed

      The idea is great but there was only one sketch per product. Wish there had been more. What was there, however was excellent.

      Love Becky Sketches?

      I love Becky's sketches books. Whenever I am in a rut I can look through these books and find something to do. This particular book I do really like because it is smaller than the other two and is hardback and will last longer. The books is tabbed so you can find layouts with a certain amount of picutres on them as Becky did in her previous books. I really like the new layouts that are in the boook as well. It seems to me there should be more sketches in the book if it really contains all of Becky's sketches, but there are well over 150 sketches so I just might be wrong.
