I just received Lorena Angulo's book 'Behind the Brooch' today. As soon as I unpackaged it and held it in my hand the first thought that crossed my mind was 'what a beautiful book.' Mind you, this was before I even opened it. The size, the cover, the dust jacket and the quality of the paper were beautiful in themselves.
The content is awesome, but even more importantly what really shows through to me is the thought and care that was taken to produce this book.This isn't one of those 'let's produce a book as fast as we can so I can say I wrote a book,' books. It is obvious that this was a labor of love and came directly from Lorena's heart. The quality, thought, and care, of everything written and the arrangements of the brooches and the idea itself shines through. It felt that she treated each piece as if it were her own. This book is a work of art in every aspect.
My work is on pages 60 and 61.
