Textiles - Mary Schoeser

 Well it has finally arrived in Australia "Textiles - Mary Schoeser"  and what a fantastic book.  It is just overflowing with incredible textile art.  What a book, I just want to keep looking at the beautiful images and read it.

"The definitive volume celebrating the richness, subtlety and endless creativity of the textile arts" from the cover slip of the book.

Over 1000 images, six chapters of world textiles.  It is a very impressive 568 pages.

And it you turn to the chapters on "Added Dimensions" there is a reference to my artwork o page 547.  And then in the chapter on "Imagery" there is a reference to my work "Frogs View", and then a colour plate of that work on pages 576.

I'm Smiling from ear to ear.  Thanks Mary Schoeser.
