This giveaway today from Dover Publications is really something special! Glamourie by Alice Starmore is like no other book I’ve come across … an enchanting mix of Scottish and Gaelic folklore, gorgeous knitting patterns, and amazing photography. And while I haven’t had the chance to knit up any of the patterns yet, I have read every tale and oohed and aahed over the gorgeous landscapes.
Glamourie is a Scots word meaning a charmed condition in which everything is invested with magical properties and possibilities.
Alice Starmore and her daughter Jade are from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, which provides the inspiration and backdrop for the stories, costume designs, and of course the photography. Taking her daughter Jade’s supernatural stories as inspiration, Alice uses the art of hand knitting to bewitch and bedazzle, and illustrate the tales with elaborate costumes and accessories that portray fanciful and extraordinary ideas. Full instructions for each are written with Alice Starmore’s trademark accuracy and precision.
Here’s a little peek of what you can find inside … aren’t these photos spectacular?!!
Dover is also extending a 20% discount to P2P readers with coupon code WRBR.
Offer expires on March 31, 2018. Shop now.
