The book is divided into 5 sections:
Wearable Art & Couture
Soft Furnishings & Vessels
Tapestries & Display Art
Each section is filled with one gorgeous image after another. I am impressed with the quality of photographs in this book. The images are clear, bright and in some cases detail shots of the items are included. Each image is labeled with the artists name and a reference number that corresponds to an image directory where the reader can find a brief detailed description of the item. This book is a wonderful compilation of inspiring images and eye candy worthy of a spot on any fiber artists or enthusiasts coffee table where it can be picked up and browsed through again and again.
It works as an idea book for those who have "fiber block." Those "what if" questions pop into my head as I see what other folks have done. . . what if I used felting to . . . what if I used these colors in a quilt? what if I used a pattern I already have to make this coat? Well, you get the idea, and if you look through this book, I promise you'll get lots more ideas - that you can use to make your own fiber art.
Of course, It was fantastic to find I was accepted and have my art quilt mixed media piece included in this impressive book. Vivian Helena
