Glamourie by Alice Starmore, usually priced at $60.00, is currently $11.15 on Amazon. I don't know how long the price will last.

I had looked at this book but was surprised to read, in the reviews, that the pictures shown are not the patterns in the book. Might be worth a chance for $11, but certainly not for $60.....

The "glamour" pictures do NOT have the patterns for them. Most of the reviews said it felt like a bait & switch. The actual patterns were "inspired by" the glamour shots. There are NO patterns for the others. Be careful.

Yes, that is true. The first part of the book is wild and creative glamour shots and the second part of the book is tamer patterns derived from the glamour shots. I'm saddened because I would wear one of the glamour patterns and I have no idea how to create it. Most of the glamour patterns are too wild for people to wear. Many of the tamer patterns are great, however, and the photography is so awe-inspiring that this would make a great coffee table book.

Just a word about the book. The fantasy knits in the beginning of the book are not included in the patterns. This is too bad as they are so whimsical and amazing. The patterns included in the back of the book are more mundane but granted much more approachable.

I did Google and found photos of some of the patterns and decided to order the book. Thanks for the info.
