So, in the meantime I will show you a couple of books.
The first one only just arrived, "Quilt Artistry" by Yoshiko Jinzenji. I saw it on Deborah's blog (thank you, Deborah, for sharing this). I want to find some time this weekend to read it, but just browsing through I am taken by the beauty of Yoshiko's quilts and the subtle colours she works with.
I have yet to find a similar book from a country of my origin. So, any Czech bloggers out there, if you'll come across one, please let me know. We also have a very rich history and I would love to own a similar book about Czech national costumes.
The art in which there is life does not depict the past, but continues it.
