Yesterday I came home and I found a package waiting by the door,inside was a gift for me from my aunt Susan Meller ,it was her new book Russian Textiles.
This book my friends is sincerely one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen.
Every page is filled with the most beautiful photos taken by Don Tuttle of the rich and luscious Russian textiles that were made for the bazaars in central Asia and were combined with local fabrics and made into the most magnificent robes,bags and incorporated into their household items,the book has over 250 reproductions that are a joy to the eye.
Here are a few images from the book.
A few traditional robes some of them where photographed inside out to show the fantastic Russian textiles:
these are a few examples of textiles found in the book:
and here is an example of a bag:
A DVD containing all the textile images from the book is available. It comes with a license granting free usage of the designs. It can be purchased exclusively from The Design Library and if you mention my blog you will get a free book with it....:)
I hope you will love this book as much as I do.
