i tried to steal this from my friend but i got caught. so i just ordered my own copy grrr. but what little i was able to read caused a lot of consideration. i like the designs style and i can incorporate it with my mostly steampunk items. i like that this had a lot of what i call boho or gypsy. my friends opinion is the designs in this book can be fairy or elven like.
