Book Description

1 Oct 2012
bowerbird [bow*er*bird] n. 1. Any of various songbirds of the family Ptilonorhynchidae. The males of which build large elaborate structures of grasses, twigs, and brightly colored materials to attract females. 2. A person who collects miscellaneous objects. Bestselling author Sibella Court has always been a bowerbird. Her first bowerbird tendencies were noticed when, at the age of three, she put together collections of shells, sequins, beads and ribbons. Like her avian counterpart, she goes far and wide to add to her collections, enjoys arranging and rearranging the pieces and, ultimately, believes that collections, containing the memories they do, are a vital part of any home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gorgeous Sibella Book 16 Nov 2012
I love Sibella Court's books - tactile, dreamy, eye candy - total escapism in 200 pages. Bowerbird is as gorgeous as all of the others and the photography of Chris Court is inspirational and lovely.

If you are looking for lots of display ideas for a single collection then this book is not for you. It's not her style anyway, Sibella isn't one to present a lot of solutions, she prefers to show you her solution and allow that to inspire your imagination which, if you're like me, can lead you to finding your own imaginative approach.

It's a nice book because although Sibella doesn't go into great detail describing several ways to display feathers, she does simply show a single way and then moves on to the next collection of show and tell. I find it simple and refreshing because it's not overwhelming or bossy - I personally appreciate her very well curated, edited ideas.

Also, her style of of writing in Bowerbird, in my opinion, is the best of her books so far. It feels much more grounded and easier to follow. It takes a lot of strength and talent to show such restraint in the ideas she presents and that is what makes Sibella one of Australia's best stylists.

Overall, a beautiful book, from the paper to the leather embossed spine and the gorgeous cover. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really lovely book 9 Feb 2013
This book looks great, substantial and 'vintage-y' so it's very current (end 2012). It's also much more than just a collection of pretty photos: its quite a substantial read for someone who likes Sibella Court's style, and really helps you learn how to create your own version. My daughter chose this book for me for Christmas and it made a lovely gift. Inspirational; and helpful in a practical sense too.
