Almost as a new-year-gift we have been given the commission to make a large new coffe-table-book to the Setesdalen Museum in Norway. Since my visit last autumn we have had discussions and now it has been decided that I will make the book. The book will show all the different garments and accessories from one of the few areas in Norway that has an unbroken folk costume tradition. Handy craft, farming, beautiful old houses and people, from babies to their great grand parents, will show the costumes and how they are worn on church going and working days.
The text in the book will be written by Curator Randi Gåserud Myrum and her colleagues, and will contain norwegian text with english translations.
The wool embroidery on the Setesdal bunad is very popular and there will be lots of photos really close up for those who would like to try and copy these works of art.
The book will be released in the autumn of 2013, just in time for all bunad enthusiasts who would like to buy themselves a lovely Christmas present.
