Metamorphosis: The Fiber Art of Judith Scott
In January I wrote about finding Metamorphosis: The Fiber Art of Judith Scott by John M. MacGregor, on the Creative Growth website. I bought the book while vacationing in Arizona and thus saved paying the exorbitant UPS shipping costs to Canada. John M. MacGregor spins a good yarn about Judith Scott, her family, and her work. The writing is compelling and it's difficult to put the book down. Even if you don't read a word of MacGregor's text, Leon Borensztein's photographs will seduce you. Furthermore, if all you do is place this book on your coffee table, the book and cover design by Mark Coleman and Mark Jones will impress you. The best thing about this book is that it honours the life and brilliant and complex work of Judith Scott.
