Book of the Month – June 2023

1 Jun, 2023 — 30 Jun, 2023

Book Title:  A Stitch Out of Time


A Stitch Out of Time features images of the embroidery of French artist Anaïs Beaulieu.  It consists of endangered plants painstakingly embroidered on throwaway plastic bags which are used for waste disposal.


The book plays with two powerful themes: environmental degradation symbolised by the ubiquitous take-over of our surroundings by plastic, and the slow time of creation, whether it is a tree or a piece of embroidery.
