Shape Shape 2
Author: Natsuno Hiraiwa
Shake up your wardrobe! Create 19 unique fashion forward garments with simple sewing techniques. Graphic designer turned fashion designer Natsuno Hiraiwa returns with patterns and instructions for 19 innovative women's garments and accessories in classic minimalist Japanese style. Many of her signature vests, collars, and shrugs are cut from a single flat piece of cloth, then ingeniously draped and fastened around the body. Other pieces are artfully twisted and folded like origami, giving a unique shape to the resulting blouses, tops, and skirts. All her designs create the striking silhouettes that epitomize her fashion collections and result in one-of-a-kind garments suitable for all ages. These pieces are uniquely constructed in a Japanese style but modified for the more Western figure with the pattern grading and sizing adjusted accordingly. Sewists will be fascinated by the novel minimalism of Shape Shape 2.

Querformat und Layout mit einem Beispiel je Doppelseite sind gleich geblieben ebenso die Dominanz der großformatigen, eindrucksvollen Farbfotos. Thematisch ist das Buch eine Fortführung der o.g. Titel. Auch diesmal geht es um ausgewählte Beispiele moderner Gartengestaltung. Der Schwerpunkt liegt diesmal auf der Verwendung von Holz, Stein und Metall. Internationale Gartendesigner zeigen in Gartenräumen ihre z.T. recht ungewöhnlichen Ideen. Die Autorin des Buches, selbst Gartenarchitektin, gibt neben einer Beschreibung der beeindruckenden Bilder, professionelle Tipps zur Umsetzung der dargestellten Ideen bei der persönlichen Gartenplanung. Für Gartenliebhaber und Gartengestalter ist dieses Buch ein Ideenfundus moderner Gartengestaltung! Bibliotheken, in denen die ersten beiden Bildbände ausreichend Publikum fanden, werden vermutlich auch diesen Band anschaffen. (2)

Author: Susan Heeger, Bernard Trainor
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press
Australian-born landscape designer Bernard Trainor has made it his life's work to capture the wild soul of his adopted home of Northern California. Neither a naturalist nor an architect, Trainor uses the tools of both to create stunning large-scale gardens that unfold over many acres. Across airy hilltops, craggy seasides, and other one-of-a-kind tracts, Trainor applies simple, understated frames to rugged natural panoramas, the better to bring them into focus. His understated yet powerful landscapes draw inspiration from local plants, regional history, and the contours of the site. Designed to engage all of the senses—the sound of water, the smell of sage—Trainor's gardens create sensory memories that foster a deep connection to the land. Landprints showcases ten of his most ambitious and inspiring gardens through gorgeous photography and detailed project descriptions.
