In this first book of interviews with visual artists from across Texas, more than sixty artists reflect on topics from formative influences and inspirations to their common engagement with found materials. Beyond the art itself, no source is more primary to understanding art and artist than the artist’s own words. After all, who can speak with more authority about the artist’s influences, motivations, methods, philosophies, and creations? Since 2010, Robert Craig Bunch has interviewed sixty-four of Texas’ finest artists, who have responded with honesty, clarity, and—naturally—great insight into their own work. None of these interviews has been previously published, even in part. Incorporating a striking, full-color illustration of each artist’s work, these absorbing self-examinations will stand collectively as a reference of lasting value.

With passion, humor, and helpful tips 100 Places In Italy Every Woman Should Go inspires women to discover places that will appeal to their spirits, senses, and quests for adventure. Author Susan Van Allen, a former staffer for the sit com Everybody Loves Raymond, has explored Italy up and down the boot for over thirty years and written about her experiences for such places as National Public Radio, Town & Country, and Travelers’ Tales anthologies. In this book, she shares intriguing details and secrets of her favorite places, along with those she’s gathered from her girlfriends, writers, and actresses. Each entry steers women to spots that will fulfill their Italian fantasies—whether it’s exploring the palace where Audrey Hepburn lived in Roman Holiday, making a carnevale mask in Venice, or admiring Botticelli’s Birth of Venus in Florence. The cornucopia of choices to experience authentic Italy are divided into categories, so whether a woman is in the mood to “Go To The Divine” and see Venus revered in Roman Forum, “Go To A Cooking Class” and roll out pasta with a Calabrian mamma, or “Go On An Active Adventure” and ski the Dolomites, Van Allen, like a savvy girlfriend, is by their side, guiding them to unforgettable pleasures. The book also includes recommendations for relaxing spas and beaches, splendid gardens, places to taste Italy’s best gelato and chocolate, and shop for treasured handicrafts. Interlaced through the prose are femme-friendly insights, like the spicy story of Nero’s wife who had an eye for gladiators, and artist Raphael’s mistress, a baker’s daughter who he called “Fornarina” (little oven). Along with inspiration, Van Allen offers nuts and bolts info and suggestions for “Golden Days” where recommended places are matched with restaurants and hotels to fit a range of budgets and make a woman’s Italian vacation dreams come true.

New in Paper The beauty of vintage paper is at the core of the absolutely captivating projects that author Sandra Evertson calls "Posh Little Follies." She has created a unique selection of enchanting little theaters, bandboxes, ornaments, and art dolls. Best of all, Sandra makes it fun for everyone else to craft them, too. The instructions are easy to follow and the elements can be color-copied straight from the book--even the actual rare papers she used. Some of the items feature embellishments such as ribbon, while others glisten with rhinestones and beads. Among the charming projects: a Prima Ballerina doll; Theatre La Rousse, complete with a Pierrot; Cupcake Papier Mache Box; and paper posies with fanciful faces to "plant" in pots.

Transform vintage finds and broken objects into pieces to treasure with Remade Vintage Jewelry. Nichole Bush has a passion for creating one-of-a-kind jewelry by combining antique and vintage treasures to make distinctive and unique statements, and in these 35 projects, she shares that passion with you. Old keys become quirky earrings or hang on chains as a pretty necklace. Pieces of watches capture a moment in time—combined with other trinkets, they're turned into a lapel pin or wrist cuff. Anything can be a charm for a necklace or bracelet—from beads to pins and earrings, even door knobs. Metal locker number tags act as intriguing focal points and tintypes (photographs on metal rather than paper, made in the late 19th century) provide an instant echo of the past. Some designs are deeply personal, incorporating things that remind Nichole of family and friends, and she suggests what you might include for your own individual pieces. With clear, step-by-step artworks and instructions, a helpful techniques section, and lots of inspiration throughout, you will soon become skilled in making your own pieces of nostalgic, stunning jewelry.
