New Craft & Vision eBook – Vision is Better 2

Recently we shared with you a free Craft & Vision eBook that many of you jumped at and should have wet your appetite. Today sees the release of a new book by Craft & Vision founder (plus photographer and author of many books) David duChemin titles “Vision is Better 2”.
