I got a copy of the ebook version of this from Netgalley, and quite honestly, even the ebook version is delicious. The first half of the book has both images and text about certain food stuffs.
The second half has descriptions of how to stitch the images from the first half. To be fair, this is the point where I would want the physical book in front of me. Not only to be able to switch easily between the instructions and the image, but the instructions do rely on you having a certain level of stitching knowledge (this is not for the beginner!).
I will be on the lookout for the physical version of this book, to add to my collection!
