We just found out that there is a new book out, about the career and designs of one of Ethel's favourite designers, Vera Neumann. Known primarily for her textiles and her introduction to the market of patterned house linens (remember those crazy daisy bed sheets you had when you were a little kid...probably Vera Neumann!), she also designed patterns for dishware as well.
We have a platter from one of her dish sets in the store right now and we're always looking for more.
We are going to get a copy as soon as we can and read up on all of her fabulous textile designs. Ethel would approve!
