A Life in Seasons

by Nicola Jarvis Vol. 1 Winter/Spring


We have been waiting with bated breath for the arrival of this stunning book by Nicola Jarvis a well known artist and Royal School trained tutor who combines floral and wildlife elements into exquisite crewel work designs.

This is Vol 1 Winter and Spring. Summer and Autumn will follow at a later date.

Reading through this book is like an exclusive invitation into her world where you are introduced to her creative process. You meet the craftspeople she collaborates with: upholsterers, bookbinders, furniture makers, wildlife enthusiasts and conservationists. She takes you on a journey through the Warwickshire Countryside which is the source of much of her inspiration.

Glorious photographs fill the pages and the end papers alone are exquisitely drawn and painted shwing a map of her inspirational journey. There are eight projects with beautifully illustrated images, a supply list for every project, step-by-step instructions with accompanying photos, diagrams and tips. There is a stitch library at the end and lift out design sheets in a folder at the back.

If you don't do any of the stitching you have a beautiful book to grace your coffee table which you will turn to time and time again
