cloth lullaby: the woven life of louise bourgeois
Discover the whimsical world of the young Louise Bourgeois, world-renowned contemporary artist and sculptor, in this lyrical, beautifully-illustrated picture book by Amy Novesky. Growing up in her family's tapestry shop, Louise watched her mother, “a repairer of broken things, not unlike a spider," hard at work. As Louise's own art begins to take shape in the form of giant spider sculptures, Novesky and illustrator Isabelle Arsenault take children on a dreamy journey through the French countryside and beyond. Recommended for young readers five and up.
