Jaqueline Groag







I've become a bit obsessed with the designs of the textile artist Jaqueline Groag and this is now my favourite new book! She also made small wooden dolls throughout her life which often cropped up in her work. I'm really fortunate to own a coffee table with her formica design on (black and white) and also several of her fabrics. This is a wonderful book and her life story is fascinating.
