NOVEL LIVING

Collecting, Decorating, and Crafting with Books

BY LISA OCCHIPINTI

In this digital age, the fate of physical books is in question. But there remains a sensory thrill to physical books—to seeing and feeling them, to turning their pages—that makes many of us value them even more as digital reading grows in popularity. In Novel Living, artist Lisa Occhipinti celebrates her love for physical books by presenting us with her unique ideas for collecting and displaying them, for conserving and preserving them, and for crafting with them. Amazingly, most of the projects require no special skills or supplies.

UNCONVENTIONAL & UNEXPECTED

American Quilts Below the Radar

1950–2000

BY RODERICK KIRACOFE

Unconventional & Unexpected is a stunning collection of nearly 150 eccentric, maverick, and extraordinary quilts made in the US during the second half of the 20th century, plus essays to contextualize them contrib- uted by artists, curators, and other quilt experts. Collected by renowned quilt authority Roderick Kiracofe, they represent a 20th-century quilt movement that has been mostly undocumented—until now. Unlike the familiar quilts that replicate traditional patterns of earlier centuries, these surprising textiles represent a freer, more casual, utilitarian style that departs from (and returns to) a multitude of norms and standards.

GERTIE SEWS VINTAGE CASUAL

A Modern Guide to Sportswear Styles of the 1940s and 1950s

BY GRETCHEN HIRSCH

The mid-20th century was an amazing time for fashion! Women started looking to American designers rather than French cou- ture houses for inspiration and to demand clothing they could move in. In Gertie Sews Vintage Casual, Gretchen “Gertie” Hirsch celebrates the classic casual styles that icons like Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, and Rosie the Riveter made famous—think wide-legged trousers, capri pants, jumpsuits, beach rompers, shorts, knit tops, jeans, and day dresses. Hirsch presents key techniques for sportswear construction and patterns for a 30-plus-piece vintage-inspired casual wardrobe.
