Tales from the Back Row Book Art

Tales from the back row

Have you enjoyed Tales from the Back Row? A look inside the fashion industry is equally entertaining and perplexing, isn’t it? Odell does a good job at giving the inside scoop while keeping an “outsider’s” point of view. Check out discussion questions below (if you’ve been following us on Insta, maybe you’ve read some of them already!), and further reading suggestions – we read Grace Coddington’s memoir last year and it was fabulous! This month’s awesome artwork is by one of my previous interns, Victoria Riza, who has gone and done some incredible things! We hope you enjoy!

July is upon us and we’re celebrating with these quirky French guys in berets! Bastille Day is later this month and it is one of my favorite holidays! If you’re unfamiliar, it’s July 14th and celebrates the French Independence. No, I’m not French, nor do I live in France. But I’ll take any opportunity to celebrate everything Parisian! Oui Oui! I hope your July is full of celebrations and you’re soaking up every ounce of Summer. Perhaps you have some vacation plans? If so, Bon Voyage!

Craft the Rainbow Book Art + Sneak Peeks

Craft the Rainbow Book Club ArtworkWe shamelessly chose Craft the Rainbow as this month’s book club book. How could we not?! It’s a pretty great book if you ask me. The cherry on top? Illustrator and artist extraordinaire, Lisa Congdon created the printable book art! It’s amazing, no? “The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most” by John Ruskin. Words to live by! Lisa Congdon is also quoted in the pink chapter of the book so you’ll have to check it out!

Since the virtual book tour has come to a close, the launch party is over, and you can now all get your hands on a copy, we wanted to talk about some of our favorite projects within the book. Each of these projects has a story behind its creation and some of them make for great stories though at the time I wasn’t laughing so much. Ha! Turns out, the making of a book, especially 40 full crafts and scenes, is a lot of work and a lot of logistical organization so there were a few hiccups along the way. Let’s check them out!

Check out the sneak peaks of the book and download this month’s artwork!

The Language of Flowers Artwork

The Language of Flowers Artwork

Hello readers! When we announced The Language of Flowers as April’s book, we had instant feedback! Our Instagram post was full of comments with high praise for it, so we’re hoping you’ve been reading along with us, whether it’s for the first time or the second. How are you liking it? Parts of this book are not easy to read, as Victoria pushes everything good away from her again and again. Her communication is through flowers though, and it’s from that language that she gains knowledge and ultimately, confidence in herself as a mother and hope for a future with the people she loves. Yes, loves! By the end, Victoria has learned to let love into her life. Here are a few discussion questions and reading suggestions. If you have a copy of the book with the author’s other discussion questions, read those too! They’re fabulous! Our amazing artwork this month was illustrated by the incredible Lisa Grue! Stay tuned for an interview with her in the next week.

March 2018 Wallpaper

I hope I’m not the only one busting out my florals and sandals since it’s finally March! Sadly, March can often be the snowiest month of the year in my neck of the woods. However, I plan to boycott the weather with a surplus of springy peasant dresses. Who’s with me? This month the March 2018 Wallpaper is the prettiest array of buttons illustrated by our favorite Monica Lynch! This brings me back to my childhood and memories of collecting all sorts of things as a kid. This button collection has such a lovely color palette and will surely brighten your day!

So gift yourself a little nostalgia by downloading the March 2018 Wallpaper after the jump!
