look a book

Textile designer Laurie Wisburn has been writing The Complete Guide to Designing & Printing which will be published next year by Rotovision (Europe) and Chronicle Books (US).  We are allowed to see/show this beautiful cover.

Laurie kindly wrote to share a few behind the scenes pictures for the book which include our Bird in Paradise in Olive (sold out; but reprinting now); exciting ! It must be so hard to keep all but a few details a secret but I do know that it looks to be a great book to read if you are interested in the design process, tutorials and interviews with yummy textile designers like skinny laminx.

Umbrella Prints, behind the scenes as bedding. Speaking of which I'm off for some zzz have a lovely weekend to you.
