Mosaic Monday / I have been shopping!

Last week I got a couple of books in the mail that I ordered.  I love to shop for mosaic books! The top book is by Eve Lynch and it is a blurb produced portfolio. You can purchase it over at blurb.com.  It contains stunning photographs of Eve's mosaic work from 08 through February 2010. 

The bottom book is by Barbara Benson Keith and it is a charming ABC book that would make a great gift for the little ones ( just be sure and order 2 ... you won't want to part with your copy).  It has info at the back about each of the critters in the book. The Zoo book and postcards to the bottom right are available at her Etsy Shop.

These gals are two of my favorite mosaic artists and I am thrilled to have their books on my bookshelf.

Very cool books. I have some great mosaic books also. I wished you lived closer so you could come a pick up a ton of glass. The owner of the gallery that sells my mosaic mirrors sold two huge ones last week and he wants more. I haven't broken the news yet that I'm not doing anymore right now...lol!

Manon- I wish I lived closer too, you would be fun to hang out with.
Thanks for stopping by Christine. Eve you are so welcome, supporting the mosaic community keeps me going with the work. Without my on-line and off-line mosaic pals the tedious work would just be way too slow and lonely. I get so motivated and inspired when I see and share great work.

Rebecca, Thanks so much! I'm so glad you like the book and postcards!

By the way, you may consider me to be a student your your color usage. I have been spending lots of time on your sites trying to figure out how you are so brilliant...

Barbara... thanks so much! I do like color. Hey one of my classmates purchased your book for her kids...yay. They are lucky kids growing up in a house filled with their Mom's own mosaic art, and now they get to learn their ABC's with your artwork.
