by Amy Butler
This wonderful book brings the many aspects of its author's vision into focus, from re-imagining the home as a retreat for relaxation and dreaming, to picturing the body as a canvas for creating one's personal style, to looking to nature as a "sketchbook" for design ideas. Helping her fans jumpstart their own creative spark is Butler's fashion credo. Her "Mid Mod" philosophy - neither homespun nor haute couture - is as up to the minute as it is firmly rooted in Midwest tradition. Emphasizing simplicity and integrity of craft, Butler is passionate about recycling materials, reinventing vintage looks, and taking joy in the homemade. Her approach - drawing its inspiration from the natural world and the lives of real people - is organic in every sense of the word. Vibrantly illustrated, the book underscores design's practical side, with information on budgeting money and time, a shopping resources list, and "how-to" projects. Amy Butler's 'Midwest Modern', hardcover book with 233 pages.
