Fabric Art Books I want – wish list

I love both collage and patchwork, maybe the ultimate thing for me will be exploring both these topics together creating mixed media fabric art? So I want some new books on collage and also these, books on fabric art:

Fabric Art Collage (Copyright Hanna Andersson) Layered tattered stitched (Copyright Hanna Andersson)

Connecting art to stitch by Sandra Meech (Copyright Hanna Andersson) Collage fusion (Copyright Hanna Andersson)

Creative Time & Space Collage Fusion by Alma de la Melena Cox looks yummy! In the preview at amazon I saw this book includes wood burning and fabric, and also using mirrors… don’t ask me how, but it sounds interesting,huh? I also love the images of Connecting Art to Stitch by Sandra Meech. This book sounds like it would be about embroidery, but I suspect it will be more about sketching designs… Maybe. I like both concepts, so I’ve ordered this book together with two other new books on fabric art – I guess that’s where I’m heading a bit more right now.I still love collage, but I want to combine that with fabric art, call it art quilting or mixed media fabric collage or what ever… The books ordered (and I will review them as soon as I read them next year) are Transparency in Textiles by Dawn Thorne and and the above pictured Fabric Art Collage by Rebekah Meier.

And of course I still want to read Ric?’s book Creative Time and Space, so I added that to my order (which is actually the Christmas gift of my parents). I think it’s cool that I “know” some of the artists in books coming out in the US, through blogs, twitter, etc. It’s a small world shrinking.

I’m not sure I should get favorite artist Lynne Perrella’s new book Art Making & Studio Spaces said to Unleash Your Inner Artist with An Intimate Look at 31 Creative Work Spaces, because I know I will be so envious of people’s studios… But when it comes out in I might not be able to resist…

Oh by the way did you know Twyla Tharp has a new book out called The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together! I loved her previous book The Creative Habit, a book I should re-read soon, maybe next year. Her new books looks like something one could really need setting up a creative business and partnering up with someone else.
