Synopsis

If British artist Lucy Sparrow had her way, the entire world would be made out of felt: fruit, vegetables, cars and buses, animals, famous buildings, paintings and almost anything else you can think of. In her project The Cornershop, this wish became part reality. During the summer of 2014 she turned an abandoned neighborhood store in East London into a bustling grocery store stocked with goods made entirely from stitched felt, to much acclaim. Colourful, quirky and inspirational, this book profiles Sparrow, the textile artist who turned a love of sewing into an ambitious vision. Readers will discover numerous objects she's created in felt such as Stonehenge, the Statue of Liberty and the Pyramids of Giza; airplanes and taxis; woodland creatures, insects, toothpaste, Prozac pills, sex toys and lots more. The world might not be made of felt, but vibrant images of hundreds of everyday items reimagined in softer, more playful forms will leave you wishing it were.
