It has been almost 3 months since The Art of Soap came out, and it has been wonderful seeing readers' reactions! The book features the stunning work and stories of 24 soapmakers, including cold process, hot process, and glycerin methods.
Soap makers and enthusiasts all agree this book is inspiring and beautiful. Don't take my word for it, here are some links to several online reviews:
The Soap Bar - "The soap maker's short story along with the close up photography of their soap brought me to tears a couple of times. The stories were powerful and a few were quite unique."
The Natural Beauty Workshop - "The Art of Soap is an inspirational treat for both soap makers and soap lovers. The beautiful imagery and intriguing stories that accompany them make for a very enjoyable read."
The Sirona Springs Blog - "I had never seen [a book] that really celebrated the creative possibilities of soapmaking. The book is filled with gorgeous full-color photographs of soap that is inspiring and sometimes just downright unbelievable (soap that looks like buttered toast with jam? Really!)."
Also, you can now find The Art of Soap at some of your favorite online book stores such as:
