Vera : The Art and Life of an Icon

"It doesn't matter where I go as long as I break my routine and see new things." – Vera Neumann

This book is a must read for all lovers of color and for textile artists (who are probably all lovers of color anyway!). Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon

I can relate to much about her life, including the inspiration she gets from travel. She was a woman way ahead of her time. She was one of the first to copyright and license her work. All her scarves started with an original painting. She introduced Op-Art designs in the late 50's. She reminds me of Sara Little Turnball. I like to imagine that they knew each other.
