I changed and add some details for the box to make it more tidy ,this is constant work and compromise. I am very glad and thankful for all the support and receptivity to my Photography Charms it really motivates me and moves me to improve constantly in every aspect of this collection and my space in TNLP shop, I trully appreciate all your support to independent artist and designers.


 

And here a shot from my phone of my actual box with the little revamp for the start of the fall, more things and images to come for fall.

Fresh Brioche by Nancy Marchant

Last summer 2013 I happily got involve with the photography project for the next Nancy Marchant's Brioche book title  Fresh Brioche (you can pre-order it). Knitting and photography in the same project is one of my favorite things. I put hands on Nancy's pieces immediately and started living around them, touching and experimenting with them.

 

This book is another big share of information on Brioche technique with some refreshing on the technique by Nancy herself. It is a mix of, how to brioche, stitch dictionary and 12  gorgeous neckwear Brioche knitting projects.

I photograph the "How to knit part of the book" too, it was quite interest for me to see the process in slow motion direct from the master but the real excitement here came for the projects Nancy design. 


I got enough freedom to create so, being a neckwear collection I opt for a classy old time catalogue, with pure strong portraits focusing in the main characters of the book, the Brioche pieces. The makeup and photography work for this book is by myself.

 

I am so exited to see this book coming! hope knitters and brioche lovers connect with this such a fine work of Nancy Marchant.


You can get her previous book here. An interview I made to Nancy here. more on this new book coming here and here

Ill be back with more hints on the book. Stay tuned
