New Magazine

For our local Geelong members, I thought I would just share a newly subscribed magazine that arrived in the Ocean Grove library this week.

eThis is a beautifully presented, great reading magazine but quite expensive. It’s from the UK but bills itself as an international magazine. The first issue includes interesting articles on The lady and the unicorn tapestries, How to bind a simple book, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and the Bloomsbury Group and many inspiring design and textile photos and articles. Check out the website as there is a free digital trial issue on offer.

I have the first copy of the library’s subscription at the moment but will be returning it later this week. Geelong library members can get on-line and reserve the mag if they have organised a pin number at the library.

Some people may be interested in one of the events advertised in this edition. An exhibition at our own National Gallery in Melbourne entitled “Persuasion: Fashion in the Age of Jane Austen”

eBeginning on 22 May and continuing until 8 November.

Don’t forget you can also get the latest issues of Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors at the library too.
