New Book - Handbags

Yesterday I treated myself to a new book - Hip Handbags: Creating and Embellishing 40 Great-Looking Bags by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader.

It is published by Lark Books (New York), 128 pages, hard cover, ISBN 1-57990-601-X. I paid $39.95 Australian for it.

And I love it - don't be put off by the very startling cover.


The majority of the book, 112 pages, is made up of 28 different bags, from seven different types/patterns. Then, at the rear, are 13 pages of "art" handbags - picture handbags made of recycled tins, cigar boxes, with faces, in felt....

I feel inspired.
