Book Review

Mendi Designs by Marty Noble, published in 2004, is a book of traditional Henna body art. This book is for any person interested at looking at many types of Henna art work.

Mendi is a traditional Indian type of Henna body art. Mendi and Henna can also be found in the Middle East. These designs are applied only on special occasions such as weddings. In a wedding, both the bride and the groom are decorated. Sometimes some oft eh guests have it as well.

Mendi art is like a temporary tattoo. They only tend to last for a couple of weeks. Mendi is made from Henna leafs and tea, coffee, wine, sugar, syrup, egg, yogurt, tamarind, fenugreek seeds, cloves or titanium powder.

In this book, you will find many pages filled with very creative Henna. Although it is not a how to book, it is still grate because it simply is just fun to look at. If you are willing to give Henna a try, I would highly recommend this book.
