Janet Bolton's Charming Textile Pictures


Old Linen, by Janet Bolton

Janet Bolton's work is magical for me. I am thrilled that I have received her latest book, Janet Bolton's Textile Pictures. It is yummy. It's about how she got started, what is her process, how did she find her voice, and so on - all accompanied by wonderful pictures of her work. It is in both English and French, with some of the English translations being amusing, in a most charming way. For example: "Janet Bolton, the internationally renewn british artist reveals you precious moments of her life and secrets of her fabulous textile pictures making of." I hasten to add that most of the English is impeccable. :)
