4.0 out of 5 stars a pretty piece of classic kidston
I was thrilled to learn that Cath Kidston was bringing out a new book, having been so disappointed buying "vintage tips" and finding out it was a recycling of her first book,"vintage style", I was hoping for something completely different from her.

The books' layout is lovely with vintage prints forming the background to the easy to read text which tells...

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely prints, but a missed opportunity?
This book could have been so much better. The prints themselves are lovely - as you would expect - but the text has been poorly edited. A few nice ideas, but you'd really be better off borrowing this book from the library...

This review is from: Cath Kidston in Print (Hardcover)
I was thrilled to learn that Cath Kidston was bringing out a new book, having been so disappointed buying "vintage tips" and finding out it was a recycling of her first book,"vintage style", I was hoping for something completely different from her.

The books' layout is lovely with vintage prints forming the background to the easy to read text which tells you how use scraps and pieces of printed fabric for projects around the home...even how to make some of Caths' latest offerings for sale in her shop. The back section is particulary good in that it explains where to look for all these fantastic vintage fabrics and gives you sewing tips and full instructions to make the items featured.
Although the book is visually stunning, (Pia Tryde takes gorgeous photos of Caths' home) some of the photos have been used before in her other books or catalogues which is a little disappointing.
This is a lovely Cath Kidston "coffee table" book which would make a great Christmas present for a follower of her distinct style!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely coffee table book..., 11 April 2007

This review is from: Cath Kidston in Print (Paperback)
This book was given to me as a gift for Christmas. It's a beatiful book to look at and if like me, you have a love of fabric, print or texture, then this book can't fail to visually inspire.

There's no doubt that Cath Kidston has a real eye for a very specific "english country rose" sort of style, put together with a contemporary eye. She also has some nice ideas for using fabrics in the home. If I were to identify a slight negative, it would be that there are no actual patterns if you fancied making her lovely apron for instance, but if you are looking for ideas or inspiration, then this book can't fail to delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars shabby chic, 23 Sept. 2010

This review is from: Cath Kidston in Print (Hardcover)
you are either a follower or you are not of this style. it is my way of getting a dose of this style that is horrendousy expensive to buy from this designer. I suppose really her ideas are what our mums had to do in make do and mend with very little money but the over all ideas came together as pretty and comforting. Use her imagination to find your own ways of doing the same.
