There’s a pleasantly little amount of photographs available of the inside of this book, “Open Studios with Lotta Jansdotter,” but we’re kind of betting that’s a good thing. Like it’s so good in there, the contents are top secret; kept under lock and key. A lot of people are excited about this book that features twenty-four spaces of artists, and that’s enough for us.
From the Chronicle Books’ website: “Internationally acclaimed designer Lotta Jansdotter reinvents the craft book and reinforces her global appeal with this rare glimpse into the studios of accomplished artists, crafters, and designers around the world. Open Studios takes us on a tour through Lotta’s favorite cities: Brooklyn, New York, where she lives; Stockholm, where she grew up; and Tokyo, where she has traveled extensively.”
“Hundreds of color photographs showcase each artist’s studio while personal interviews reveal how they organize their supplies, use their space, and—most importantly—where they find inspiration. The featured makers include graphic designers, photographers, ceramic artists, printers, and more—each offering a unique perspective on how to shape, decorate, and organize (or not!) a creative space.” More here.
