The dressmaker's handbook of couture sewing techniques : essential step-by-step techniques for professional results by Lynda Maynard — Making your own clothing, or making for others, can be deeply satisfying, but when the insides don't look as good as the outsides or the garment can't survive being laundered, one can quickly get frustrated. This book offers instructions for techniques for finishing, for showing off special details, for hiding what you don't want to show off, and for selecting the right techniques for your project. Also included is a directory of fine fabrics, including how to handle them and special techniques that will help preserve their luxury feel.

75 birds, butterflies & little beasts to knit and crochet by Lesley Stanfield — Amigurumi and critter knitting have gotten quite popular lately, and this book brings a natural approach to each. Included here are patterns for flowers, bugs, leaves, sea life, fruit and veg, and even eggs and bird nests. All of the projects within are realistic rather than cartoonish, and some even use non-traditional knitting/crochet materials such as raffia.
