The first is by our local celebrity art quilter, Lyric Kinard, who has published her first book after many acclaimed articles in Quilting Arts magazine.
I have not read it yet, but I love the colorful hardback cover and the fact that it is spiral-bound to lie flat. This book is full of exercises to teach the elements of art. I am happy to see several quilts by my fellow CyberBee members Kathy Hefner and Mary Corcoran in the Student Gallery. I recognize some of Lyric's quilts that have been in our Capital Quilters' Guild Shows. Looking forward to working my way through this book!
And here is the other book, hot off the press:
I am hoping that Beth Wheeler will unlock some of the secrets to using Adobe Photoshop Elements to edit photographs and use them in art quilts.
Too bad if anyone needs me this week...I will be reading!
