Book a week number 4...

My next book should hopefully prove useful not only at home but also in my retail space too.  I am rather a collector of 'stuff'...this ranges from magazine cuttings & greetings cards, (which eventually get collated into 'source books' - of which I have many, I currently have a Christmas one & everyday one on the go.  I usually post a couple of images of some of my favourite pages from time to time) to bits of rust, shells & stones, feathers, old keys, cat brooches, Bob Dawe ceramics, & Orla Kiely anything!  I take joy in the display of these items & feel that pieces look better in groups, repetition creates a stronger impact....I just maybe need a larger house!?

Creative Walls by Geraldine James is available here.....
it's a beautiful book full of inspiring photographs & ideas.

I was discussing my 'Book a week' project with a lady at the weekend while we were looking through some art books for sale at the Crypt Gallery's table top sale (another one this weekend by the way). She was saying how she had so many art books that she's not properly read...I of course explained my plan for 2014 & how it is allowing me to focus on one book at a time & not to feel guilty about the books sat waiting on the shelves.  I also felt ok about adding to my collection with a Peter Blake Collage book to read at a later date....
