books in the news

June 7, 2012

Maiwa Handprints catalogue for their 2012 textile symposium was in the mail


the catalogue alone is a treasure

every workshop is a gem ( I have not received anything for this endorsement!!) 

with several instructors from Japan, sad to say but I’ll have to win a lottery before I can go this year – maybe if I stopped buying books?…

and then there were these two

Velma and Aimee have books in 1000 Artists’ Books as does Dorothy Field, Victoria papermaker, bookmaker, artist, author and world traveller.  

and A Different Kind of Luxury – Japanese Lessons in Simple Living and Inner Abundance. It tells the stories of 11 people living a very different kind of rural life.

the new bojagi is almost putting itself together, a very real pleasure.

    Mmmm, books! I can’t leave without as well. No kindle for me!
    The bojagi is beautiful, I should seriously think of making one myself.

    hey, thanks for mentioning me, too. it was a treat to find aimee and me opposite each other on the page spread. the bojagi is a quite beautiful way to use up/showcase beautiful bits of cloth.

    You have certainly been busy with that bojagie , Jean. Mine is only in my thoughts at this stage. Too many other challenge pieces which need finishing

      Hi Judi – I hand stitch the bojagi in the evenings – it’s very meditative. The sakiori is going so slowly and I’m giving my spinning shoulder a bit of a rest.

    Thanks for the shout-out! I hope someday that I get to meet Dorothy, too. Life would be much less fun without buying books!

      Aimee – I honestly don’t think I could live without books. Congratulations for being 2 of the 1000.

    Like that bojagi, Jena. I am going to do either a bojagi or a boro cloth soon. Gotta get the boys’ PJs finished before I allow myself the pleasure..
