Cloth Books - oh how I love cloth books

This is Ruth Ashton's Monsters of the Household Variety.  I first saw this on Anthropologie's website and have started to make my way through her website.  I am excited that Anthropologie is selling unique artist objects.  I would love to get my hands on this.

line and shape - oh how I love line and shape

These are pages from Louise Bourgeois' cloth book.  I found these on the blog wren handmade.

The great Louise Bourgeois

I first saw this on the blog, wren handmade, and kept thinking about it for months.  This is the amazing cloth book Ode à l’Oubli.  Louise Bourgeois has left a legacy of works, and many of my favorites are her works done in cloth.  Please read this NYTimes article,  Louise Bourgeois Builds a Book From the Fabric of Life, by Amy Newman.    I wish I could spend a day, or days exploring these pages.  Hopefully one day.
