A real blast of colour & domesticity for the home.,
This review is from: The Gentle Art of Domesticity (Hardcover)
I, too, am familiar with the work of Jane Brocket through her blog, yarnstorm, and true blog-devotees will recognise many of the photos and indeed content of the book as areas that have been covered on the blog in the past. There is plenty to keep a domestic artist inspired here, from the sumptuous pictures to the evocative words and the short chapters mean that you do not need a great long stretch of time to read them. It is not a manual, so readers seeking a recipe or a sock pattern would do better to look elsewhere. Having said that, there is an extensive list of stockists at the back, and Jane always credits books, publishers, patterns and inspiration where necessary so as a springboard to a life as a domestic artist the book is just the inspiration needed to go and find that angora wool you bought on sale last year and to get knitting.... as long as you can read and knit at the same time!
