It took Salley ten years to develop her own fabric relief techniques. She embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, she renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy that generations of your family will treasure for years and years to come.
We're especially thrilled to have her here this year, since we're planning to exhibit her wonderful, whimsical scenes in a very special exhibit as part of our 2012 holiday celebrations.
