Kirsty is hosting a new meme called Snoop my stuff. So I am joining in.
From top to bottom the book Just My Type by Simon Garfield is about fonts ... It is fascinating reading for the typography lover- and seriously you will never use the font Gill Sans first designed by Eric Gill again if you knew the relationship the weirdo had with his dog. It is the perfect gift for the font nerd like myself....a whole chapter on my shared hatred of comic sans... ( I will go on as I am sure some of you have fallen asleep) Next we have The Art Of Conversation by Catherine Blyth. Now allow me to explain... people that know me would laugh at me having this book because the title suggests it's for someone shy and quiet of which I am neither but I am really bad at small talk.... because of my other work where within 5 minutes of meeting someone I am asking them incredibly personal questions I am no good at not going straight for the jugular... no good at small talk... although this book is more about the history of conversation and how it has changed I have learnt some useful things.... I think....
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingslover, I read this book a while ago and I just borrowed it from a friend to read again- I love it. Have you read it? How to use my camera- get it out of Manual mode.... The Divided Heart : Art and Motherhood by Rachel Power- I pick this up when I feel like I am struggling with the juggle... if you are a mum and a maker it is a life changing book. Another how to take photos book... and at the bottom the ever inspiring Handmade Nation . My friend made the necklace hanger for me for my birthday last year...Chef made the bedside table. The lamp, made from string of tiny beads was the first home wares kind of thing I ever bought, when I was 16. I still like it.
I don't think this really shows anything you didn't already know about me? Amateur photography, crafter, mother, font lover....What do you think?
