***Found this treasure on the library shelves and would absolutely buy a copy if the most affordable one I can find wasn`t $300.
Karen Nicol is an incredible artist and this book is such a beautiful glimpse into her process but in a way that encourages individual creativity. She has the briefest of intros but in one of the paragraphs there she perfectly encapsulates what is to come:
`I chose these seven methods of working because they illustrate techniques which you can find in museums and galleries, and on vintage costume, and your can work out how to do them yourself. They don`t need particular skills or knowledge of embroidery stitches, all they need is to be seen with a creative and imaginative eye used in conjunction with the visual inspiration around us and a sense of irreverence.`
Then she has a section of seven techniques (upcycling, the sewn strip, tufts, fold over, fagotting, sequins, pleats, and cut work - well, I guess that is eight so maybe her editor needed to revise that intro...). For each technique Nicol does a spare written page about the technique at the top, in the middle a section with inspiration for a piece on the left page and the piece on the right, then two pages at the end of each section with a few words about materials, techniques, and how the work was commissioned or shared.
The work is stunning but presented in such a clean way that there is so much space for the reader`s imagination to leap into how these ideas could be applied at home. What a perfect, perfect boook.
