This review is from: Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration: In the Studio and Behind the Scenes with Extraordinary Women (Hardcover)
I am, and was, a huge fan of the first Where Women Create book. I was hoping for more of the same and was very disappointed. The book has a nice layout and beautiful photos just like the first book, but there are no photos of actual studios. The photos are of tiny little vignettes as opposed to room views. I wanted to see and get a feel for the studio space these women work in, not the one slipper on their floor or the one decorated picture frame. There was also very little information about where the studios were located (i.e., attic, basement, extra room, etc). This information is interesting and would be inspiring for finding that space for ourselves. In short, the views of actual studios were limited or nonexistent in this book - very disappointing.

The Where Women Create Book Of Inspiration was not meant to be a book about studios as was the first book and the magazine. It's purpose was to tell the stories of what inspires creative women. When those items that inspire are in the studio then there were pictures of where they are in the studio, how they are displayed, and stories of why they are so important.
