✩ Most frequently asked question:
- Is your book available in English or French?
My book is only available in Japanese at the moment, but I am planning to publish it in French and English in the near future. Stay tuned!
- Is your book suitable if I can’t read or understand Japanese?
This is quite difficult to guess, but I would say that some projects (such as the camellia brooch p.42) may be easier than others to understand even if you don’t speak or read Japanese, with the help of the photos.
- Are the sketches easy to understand?
I believe that my sketches are easy to understand, but may you have a question, feel free to get in touch with me via email - marie[at]mariemaglaque[dot]com - or on my Facebook page.
✩ Template of the camellia brooch - DIY project p.42 in the book
We have realized that the template of the camellia brooch (p.42) had gone missing in the book - how could we possibly not see it? You can download a PDF of the missing template here.
