Cover of the Day: Jaipur Quilts

Krystyna Hellström's Jaipur Quilts is on my Christmas wishlist but since December is months away, I thought I'd help spread the word that the book is now available in the U.S. As you can see, a quilt with those iconic rows of red Mughal poppies was chosen for the cover. To see the same motif on antique resist-dyed and mordant-dyed cotton floor covers, visit the MFA, Boston and the V & A.

And of course here's Brigitte Singh's interpretation in the previously posted circa 2000 bedroom of artists Elliott Puckette and Hugo Guinness. (Aleta is the source for Singh's blockprinted fabrics in the U.S. and UK.)
