I noticed this evening as I was working on this book post, Amazon shows I purchased this book on January 20, 2011. That was almost 2 weeks exactly after I began the process of turning my son’s old bedroom into an office/craft/sewing room. I was definitely in the zone and looking for inspiration.
In the BNOTP Library: Where Women Create: Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women
Author: Jo Packham
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Though most of the creative work spaces featured in this book are not especially spaces I would feel comfortable working in on a daily basis, I found this book fascinating! It’s not often you get a peek into the studios and offices of some of the most creative designers and artists of our day.
- The studios, workrooms and offices of 26 well-known designers and artisans are featured in this book. They are: Wendy Addison, Susan Alexander, Kitty Bartholomew, Anna Corba, April Cornell, Cheri Ellis, Cindy Ellis, Sandra Evertson, Dena Fishbein, Andrea Grossman, Dee Gruenig, Charlotte Lyons, Victoria MacKenzie-Childs, Freddie Moran, Jo Packham, Eileen Paulin, Susan Pickering Rothamel, Jill Schwartz, Debbee Thibault, Sara Toliver, Sabine Vollmer von Falken, Jessie Walker, Suze Weinberg, Carolyn Westbrook, Nancy Wiley and Martha Young. I bet you recognize just a few of those names!
- This isn’t a “how-to” book in that it doesn’t really tell you how to create a home studio. Instead, there are tons of pictures showing how each woman featured in this book has set up her office, work room or studio. Each woman also shares her thoughts and feelings about her own work space and why she designed it that way. It really is fascinating and wonderful how different they all are.
