Inspired by various “scapes,” including the sea, land, and sky, Beaney and Littlejohn present a series of fiber art pieces that are original, richly textured, and harmoniously colored. The authors base their work on actual sites from their travels—from Australia to Tunisia—and describe how they derive inspiration from visual observation with emotional sensation to create work that represents specific locations. The book is primarily a gallery of their work accompanied by descriptions that are succinct and captivating, recounting their travels as well as how they created each piece. An array of techniques are used, including painting, hand and machine stitching, embellishing, and even knitting. The most captivating aspect of this book is without a doubt the full-page images of Beaney and Littlejohn’s work, which include both their finished textiles and the original sketches and paintings that inspired by them. The parallels are breathtaking and the resulting pieces are a masterful combination of literal and abstract interpretation. The reference section at the back includes several pages of stitch suggestions as well as a list of necessary materials to help guide you in creating your own stitched work.
