Book good, Binding bad, June 5, 2009 2 stars
Pros
Wonderful collection of Peter McGrains work.
Cons
Book falls apart. The binding comes apart. Poorly put together.
Other Thoughts
I purchased the book. When I received it, I opened the cover and the binding came apart. I had the book replaced and the 2nd book did the same thing. I wanted it as a coffee table book but now it just sits up on the book shelf. Wish I could show it off. For me it was not worth the money.

No Experience Necessary, June 4, 2009 5 stars
Pros
I have been using Glass Eye 2000 for several years now and I just love it. Right from the start I was able to use the program without any training or experience. No more running to the copy store or guessing what color glass I should use. You can even add your glass and texture files to there already large library of glass files, and at a touch of a button or two I can change the glass color or resize the pattern to what ever size I want. I know how my panel will look before I cut my first piece of glass. This program takes all the hard and technical work of designing away from me and lets me get to what I like doing best - Creating. I use Glass Eye 2000 on 95% of the work that I produce. Whether I'm working with lead or foil or both in the same panel, this program does it all. It even allows me to figure the material cost of my panels.
Cons
Because it is so much fun and it gets my creative juices flowing, I tend to spend more time than I should on designing a pattern.
Other Thoughts
I tried other programs but became frustrated because I had no technical experience or the program lacked in it's software design. Not with Glass Eye 2000.
