Again I purchased and enjoyed these books over the last few years and I am willing to share them. Amazon's rules are that they are free to borrow for a two week period but can only be loaned out once each. To borrow, email me @ ltagg@msn.com let me know which title you are interested in, your name and e-mail address and as soon as I am able to do so, I will send it to you if it is available. The reason I am sharing these books is because it really isn't costing me anything to do so and these may be titles you thought about purchasing but didn't really know if they were worth the cost. This way you can check them out for FREE!

That is very generous! Do you have to be in America, or can people from other countries borrow books? (sorry, I don't know if Amazon has geoblocking set up for loaning books)

The ebooks Victorian fashions and costumes from Harper's Bazar, 1867-1898 and Creative Foundations have both been loaned out. Amazon's rules state a book may only be loaned once so these are no longer available. I do have several other great art/craft books to loan, if you are interested they are listed in the first post of this thread. The Collage Couture: techniques for creating fashionable art...is an amazing paper doll book and is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this book.

Shame the bead book is gone or I'd have borrowed that too, but I hope Sheila enjoys it as much as I enjoyed The Art of Layers.
