Comment about the Book by Sharla Hicks CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) and owner/webmaster of Soft Expressions:
Sharla is teaching Zentangle Classes at the Brick & Mortar Store at Soft Expressions in Anaheim California

This book is the sweetest thing and probably my favorite yet of the published books on the subject of Zentangle. It is a great reference when you want a quick look at the tangles. It also is very helpful when learning the LANGUAGE of Zentangle as each tangle used to decorate the Letters is labeled with the Tangle name. If you want to understand better the Language Zentangle and its purpose, find a Certified Zentangle teacher near you.
