With over 40 stencil motifs presented in four parts - the kitchen garden, the country park, the seaside and simple patterns - The New Stencil Book replaces heavy handedness with restraint.
Simone Smart has developed a range of stenciled giftware which she sells through mail order, at her shop in Wilton, Wiltshire and through a gallery in 5th Avenue, New York. Her commissions for private clients are extensive and are in addition to her work for V&A Enterprises (giftware for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London). She runs regular stencil workshops, focusing on designing, cutting and spray stenciling.Pia Tryde is amongst the most talented and versatile of today's photographers and her photography is recognizable by the freshness of her approach. Her use of natural light brings out the truest colors in her subject matter and her shots have an honesty about them that comes from their clean unclutteredness. Her recent work includes pictures for "Julia Bird's Soft Furnishings" and "New Swedish Style" by Sasha Waddell.
