Fly Me to the Moon: An Art Quilt Journey is now available for pre-ordering at Amazon and other printed book venues near you!
As you undoubtedly know, my art quilt A Modern Artemis is included in the FMTTM exhibit and book.
Here’s the info from the publisher’s website:
When the Apollo astronauts went to the moon, the whole world watched. When the Fly Me to the Moon art quilt challenge went out, it went global. This book showcases the curated results of that call for entries: 179 art quilts by over 130 artists from 8 countries, expressing their interpretation of the space program and all things lunar. Walk down memory lane or discover the story of the missions for the first time, but most importantly, enjoy a trip to the moon and beyond without the time and rigors of space training. As you travel into space, meet the astronauts, hum the tunes, and listen to the artists tell you about their pieces. Find endless inspiration and discover what the moon is really made of: cotton, thread, crystals, paint, ink, tulle, and crocheted lace.
I can’t wait to get my copy!
