Lucy Sparrow's Felt World

Exuberant, engaging, and thought-provoking, Lucy Sparrow's felt art objects are brought together for the first time in this book. If British artist Lucy Sparrow had her way, the entire world

would be made out of felt: fruit, vegetables, cars and buses,
animals, famous buildings, paintings, and almost anything
else you can think of. In her project The Cornershop, this wish
became reality. During the summer of 2014 she turned an
abandoned neighborhood store in East London into a bustling
grocery store stocked with goods made entirely from stitched
felt, to much acclaim. Colorful, quirky, and inspirational, this
book profiles Sparrow, the textile artist who turned a love
of sewing into an ambitious vision. Readers will discover
numerous objects she's created in felt such as Stonehenge, the
Statue of Liberty, and the Pyramids of Giza; airplanes and taxis;
woodland creatures, insects, toothpaste, Prozac pills, sex toys
and lots more. This book presents vibrant images of hundreds
of everyday items reimagined in softer, more playful forms. The
world might not be made of felt, but this playful book will leave
you wishing it were.
