It has been a good and a bad book week. I received two lovely books in the mail from Amazon.com - belated b'day pressies to myself. As you can see, I purchased Dogs in Vogue (a century of canine chic) which as some fabulous photographs combining two of my favourite things: fashion and dogs. And no, it's not dogs in fashion, just dogs in the fashion photos.
I also chose the new book on designer Orla Kiely. Such a beautiful book...
Wonderful patterns...but I wish she'd use more blue and a dash of pink and aqua..
My sad book news is that whilst I was lucky/talented (?) enough to be selected into a book about Australian and New Zealand Textile and Fibre Artists, the book is now not going to be published. I'm a bit gutted. How exciting would that have been? I hate getting my hopes up to get them dashed.
I suppose at least I have my beautiful submission photographs (like the one above) ready for a future book. *sigh*
