Celebrating my 50th ebook Textile Inspirations Prehistoric. Wow. My ebooks are exactly as I would write a book in print, with full colour illustrations and attention to detail. They are intended to provide inspiration to as wide an audience as possible. As a fully qualified and experienced teacher (of too many years) I put my hands-on knowledge into my ebooks.
TEXTILE INSPIRATIONS PREHISTORIC
Celebrating my 50th ebook Textile Inspirations Prehistoric is quite an achievement. I began this ebook in 2012, and then in 2016 I thought I was ready to launch. I did a craft fair at Creswell Crags, and the ebook went onto the back burner because I lost confidence owing to someone’s comments. Everything happens for a reason they say. When I returned to the ebook this year, I found not only a renewed spirit, but things occurred to me that had not back in 2016 or 2012.
This series is unique in providing step by step projects and is like a mini ecourse.
The ebook can be purchased on the website
Just the beginning
This is the beginning of history in more ways than one. The prehistoric period is the period before anything was written down. It is a fascinating period of our history.
For me, this is the beginning of what I envisaged in 2012. A new range of ebooks exploring history through textiles. A few weeks ago someone on social media made a joke about no-one would write a book on the Sumerians. My next textile book does indeed take a very close look at the Sumerians. It too was begun in 2012, as I intended it to be the first of the series. Then I started making cave paintings and realised that prehistoric should naturally be the first in the series.
So it is, at the beginning of what we know of our history. Follow me on this journey. These are not history books, they are textiles and art books all about inspiration, ideas and resources for your own creative development.
It’s not every day that someone launches their 50th ebook. All ebooks are exclusive to the website. Please take a look.
