Until now, I never really understood all of the hoopla about Nancy Crow. I've always loved the fabrics she designs - mostly landscapes and nature themes - but even after reading her book I still don't understand the connection between her work as an artist and her work as a designer.
At least I now I feel like I have a better understanding of her progression as an artist and what "makes her tick." I appreciate her observations about making her art, and I've even added a quote from her book to my sidebar that I find extremely relevant. I can also relate to her challenges with indecision and insecurity. And although I think she has a lot to offer as a teacher, I still don't think she'd be my cup of tea.
Definitely a worthwhile read, and the quilts and photography are stunning, but unless you're a big fan of her work I'm not sure it's worth the hefty price. Borrow it from the library or a friend, buy it used, or wait until it goes on sale at Amazon.
