Since the description does not say it, its a soft cover, medium sized book.
Of course I expected an intro and a review of the product and accessories, but I also expected some 'how to' chapters. If I had had access to the ToC, I might have guessed this book was not for me.
It is about resins itself, history, chemical compositions, making of moulds & masters, health hazards (good job on safety), storage, materials that can be used with resins, finishing, what 'can' be done with resin.
For someone like me who is interested in dipping my toes in making resin jewelry, reading the book was like listening to someone who is an expert on something and was talking over my head. I found the book very 'technical' and dry.
There's little explanations provided on statements that would be unfamiliar to a rookie. An example is, it says on p81 that metals should be sealed but does not say with what. On p94 it indicates that silver should be treated and shows examples on pieces where oxidation occured afterwards, but it does not say what kind of treatment should be used to avoid oxidation. I would very much have liked to know.
Certainly there are photos but not so much for the purpose of explaining, except in mixing and mould making. Mostly the photos are gallery/examples, which while very inspiring are not helpful.
Although the back cover indicates "...a pratical book that will also encourage & inspire all those who would like to make jewelry in resin", this book does not inspire, it is more for people who are already familiar with resin to provide advanced knowledge on this medium.
