Found at the library, Cloth Lullaby: The Woven Life of Louise Bourgeois, words by Any Novesky, and pictures by Isabelle Arsenault. OH, MY . . . the illustrations, the lyrical language, the story of Louise. . . all of it. So much inspiration . . . the stitching has begun.
" . . . on the water that wove like a wool thread through everything."
"She loved to work in the warm sun, her needle rising and falling beside the lilting river, perfect, delicate spiderwebs glinting with caught drops of water above her."
" . . . Louise would study the web of stars, imagine her place in the universe, and weep, then fall asleep to the rhythmic rock and murmur of river water."
