Matisse, Textiles and Nature: More For My Library
How does Anthropologie's book buyer know my taste so well? Matisse: His Art and Textiles, highlights the artist's lifelong passion for fabrics and pattern. Included are 190 color illustrations of his works as well as samples from his own textile collection. This book is actually the catalogue for last year's exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Bedside Book of Birds by Graeme Gibson is getting rave reviews as a sumptuous collection of illustrations, poetry and legends, combined to explore our relationship with birds through the ages. Although I spotted both books at Anthropologie, they are available through Amazon and other sellers.
