Magazine: Vorsicht! Glas!
New magazine! Printed in Germany - this is an English translated version of a German magazine.
It's way cool.
Apparently - according to a column inside - it is content taken from two issues of the German version.
The translation is a little spotty in places. It is all perfectly understandable - but really needs an editor to go over it one more time. ;-)
The pictures are fabulous - and it contains some excellent tutorials. Some are very basic - but there is one really cool intermediate one as well.
Here's an example of what it looks like inside.
This particular issue has articles on:
History of Glassbeads
Jewelry from Africa
OpArt Cubes (see pic)
Flowerstones (Very cool small paperweights)
Triangle beads and
Lining a bead.
A bunch of Eye Candy too.
It's a little oversize - 8.25 x 11.75 inches - and 39 pages. It has a cover price of a whopping 16 Euros - which would make it about $32 Canadian. Ouch.
That said - I would probably buy it anyway. ;-) I'm going to try the flower stones. Although I will have to look up what a "larded fly mushroom" is - as, at one point - that's what the end of the rod is supposed to look like. I can hardly wait!
