Retrieved my pre-Christmas notes today, so here it is ... the booklist that was intended to be posted over the holidays. There's several craft books included that don't, as far as I know, reflect anybody's especial interests/hobbies ... they're here because they're worth viewing as art books, even if you have no intention of taking up the craft itself. Enjoy!
