:::Gothic Arch eBook:::


Gothic Arches - exploring arches through mixed media

I created this eBook last summer, a labor of love that took many hours to create. My hope was to get it published, but with the economy several publishers told me they were cutting back on "paper" type craft books. I have finally compiled and edited the book into a format that I thought might be fun and thus a FREE downloadable eBook was created.

I wish to thank the artists who contributed their work to make this project a success. There are so many that I wished to include (perhaps a second edition) because there are so many talented artists contributing their work. I was unable to compile a few artists work because of time constraints and not getting their information.

I hope you will enjoy this little eBook and find creative inspiration in it!

The book is in pdf format and you will need Adobe in order to view it.

You can download it securely off my web site:

Nancy, your book is a work of art in itself. Please keep trying to get it published in paper form. It is a valuable resource for those of us who aren't yet proficient in the art of the gothic arch. The examples and illustrations are beautiful and the explanations are clear. It is an excellent reference book as well as an eye candy book. Thanks for sharing it.

WOW!!! This is awesome, and what a generous thing to offer it to your readers. I agree with Faye-- I hope you'll keep trying to get it published-- it's wonderful and deserves to be in print.

Thank you so very much for the download. I'll treasure it-- and learn a lot, too.

Hugs,
Linda

Thank you Nancy for sharing this amazing work of the heart with us. I do so hope you can find a way to get it published.

its really nice, really like it a lot, the work out art is not necessarily something made by a big artist or a genuis, its small things that others fall in love with, and your work of art is just like that..
