It's no secret I love love love books! All sorts of books but especially art, craft and fashion books.
I recently bought these beauties and thought some of you might like them too.
The New Artisans is a beautiful book that profiles over seventy international artists from all areas of craft/art making , including Angus and Celeste from Australia. There are hundreds of images of the most inspiring work. I thoroughly recommend it, though I warn you, it will make you want to jump on the computer, do some searching for these craftspeople and then do some internet shopping!
Next up is Paper Cutting by Laura Heyenga with a forward written by famous paper artist Rob Ryan (I love his work). Again, a thoroughly inspiring book full of stunning colour images of the work of highly talented artists from around the world. The work covers quite traditional paper cutting through to very contemporary, cutting edge work. It makes me want to cut some paper!
Lastly is this great book investigating the designs of famous fashion house Louis Vuitton and designer Marc Jacobs.
There's an insert reproduction of an old catalogue. I just love the history!
The book is full of eye candy (not to mention arm candy!).
The image below is from one of LV's most favourite collections of mine, Spring Summer 2007. SO much prettiness!
Are you addicted to books like I am? Do you actually read them, or just tend to flick through the pages of pretty pictures like I do? I already have another bunch of titles on my wishlist.
Have a nice Wednesday my friends.
