would be useless to me. this describes how someone who considers themselves an artist, possibly high end; could or should go about philosophically and even emotionally designing with the purpose of expressing that. I just put beads together to look pretty.

There is ALWAYS a wait list for this wonderful book! It's a good mix of creative and practical advice. I highly recommend it.
