    Ms. Shepard’s “Global Expressions, Decorating With Fabrics From Around the World” is a terrific selection for anyone interested in bringing the beauty of fabrics from around the world into their home. Similar to Ms. Shepard’s “African Accents”, the decorating and crafts projects are described clearly with easy-to-follow instructions. The beautiful photographs are a pleasure to look through and provide creative inspiration to show how anyone could use the stylish, yet practical decorating ideas in this book to accent their own personal style.
    This book is a definite must-have item for anyone with decorative fabric sitting on a shelf just waiting to be used. One of my favorite projects, the Japanese Print Accent Fan, was the perfect centerpiece for my table at Thanksgiving. My next project will be an Indonesian Batik Pillow. “Global Expressions” provides excellent guidance to anyone wishing to create a “Global Eclectic” décor for their home, while also being informative on the cultural and historical significance of the crafts and artistry of diverse cultures throughout the world. I continue to enjoy it, and highly recommend it!

    Perhaps the subtitle of the book could have been “Collecting Fabrics From Around the World”, or “Try Your Hand at Textile Design”. I was looking for more history, pictures of the textiles,and examples of integrating indiginous cloth into decor, rather than craft and sewing how-to’s. For my needs, it was a bit too eclectic.
