The Modern Mosaic Handbook by Luciana Notturni
From the cover "The Modern Mosaic Handbook is especially geared to students who are also interested in contemporary mosaic technique, the different methods involved and its expressive potential....The Modern Mosaic Handbook is an effort to classify the grace/movement that modern mosaic art has acquired in the modern age and to provide an educational foundation that helps to understand the reasoning and function behind mosaic art". The handbook covers topics such as Materials, Mortars, Substrates, Grout, Protection, Tools, Working methods, Mosaic Rules, Micro Mosaics, Industrial Mosaic, Colour theory, and the Evolution of mosaic art. 155pp
The latest 2020 issue has at last arrived - featuring Australian artists Pamela Irving and Rachel Bremner, and the MAANZ exhibition also gets a mention.
