Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


Two Minute Escape

Afternoon sinking spell? Already in need of a break?

Take two minutes and escape back to those childhood visits to the library. (Remember listening to stories and coming home with a new book to explore?)

This site offers a quick peek into illustrator Florine Asch's book, Mes carnets de Safari.  Asch is one of the artists included in the richly-colored scrapbook,  To India with Love.

 [John Guy's book available through]

BTW: I have finally started delving into John Guy's Woven Cargoes and it's amazing. I know 'amazing' is an over-used word, but this edition truly is lavish and informative.
