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". First Edition, First Printing. 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 original embroidered bas-relief artwork used to illustrate the book is touring the US. "Salley Mavor: Bedtime Stitches" is on display at the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mt. Vernon, Illinois through May 2, 2021. To see the exhibition schedule, please visit Salley Mavor's website,

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!

LOVE THIS BOOK! Watching from afar through blog posts and emails as Salley created each piece of this story captivated my artsy soul. I wish we could travel to view her art on display at the Cahoon Museum, but alas the pandemic world is preventing such a fun and immersive trip. Treat yourself to this global lullaby. You won't regret it.
