I’ve read other Henna books and this one is better because it shows step by step instructions on how to make your own henna and how to do intricate designs, which is the hardest part of Henna. Unlike other books, it also includes how to decorate phone cases with henna designs, which is I think unique to this book.

The book has lay flat binding so you can leave it open to the design you are working on so you can practice. The beautiful colour photographs are very well done and show all the details.

My mom does Henna for fun and makes her own which she learned from another book. This book however, also teaches her how to make her own tubes to apply the henna. She is excited to try it out.
