The-Bees-Laline-Paull-without-Sleeve

Having worked with two bee brands Unbeelievable Health (who we still work with) and LifeMel, the necessity of bees in the world, and their plight is something very close to my heart.

The book is aimed at beginners, but is an excellent go to for intermediate to advanced level creators.
