Autographed copy of fiber artist Salley Mavor's newest picture book, "MY BED: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep around the World". Words by Rebecca Bond, pictures by Salley Mavor. 40 pages, 9" x 9". Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Personal inscriptions available.

"Ingeniously illustrated" Starred review from Kirkus

My bed rocks on water
My bed sways in the breeze.
My bed’s beneath a curtain
My bed’s aloft in trees . . .

In the Netherlands, some beds rock on water. In Brazil they might sway in the breeze. From Canada to Japan, Afghanistan to Norway, sleep has taken many forms and shapes throughout history. Astonishing, hand-stitched illustrations and a delightful narrative tell the story of sleeping traditions across the world.

An exhibition of the original embroidered bas-relief artwork reproduced in the book is touring the US. "Salley Mavor: Bedtime Stitches" will be on display at the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County, Moorhead, MN - Oct. 15 - Jan. 1, 2023. To see the exhibition schedule, please visit Salley Mavor's website, weefolkstudio.com.

Yay!! I am so happy to have this book. I saw her exhibit while it was in Illinois and was beyond amazed. After, I got straight online to find her and learn more about her artwork, I then found this book. SIGNED!!! My kids and I love to sit and look through this book, it's like we see something new every time. Her art and craftsmanship is beyond fantastic!

I saw this on Amazon in the “you might like” section when looking for children’s books. I’ve started doing a quick google search of books I see before I buy to preview them etc. Glad I did, because I found Sally Mavor’s Etsy page in the search. A personalized, autographed copy for just a bit more (mostly because on Amazon I would have had free shipping with Prime). So I definitely went with the personalized signed copy from the artist. The book is just as pictured—a lovely treasure because of the art and the theme. The only improvement I would suggest is that the words are not quite as lovely as the art. I like the theme of learning about kids around the world, but the writing could be more engaging, such as in rhyme. I saw the original works will be on tour, which would be neat to see. Thank you, Sally!

Salley Mavor is Incredible in this type of art! I bought this book for my granddaughter, and I know she will love it! Thank you for the thoughtful presentation of the book as it arrived to me in a lovely tissue and a little surprise with it. The quality of the item is fabulous! My expectations were absolutely met! I also loved that Salley signed the book! What a nice touch!
