Publisher Comments:

In TASHA TUDOR'S HEIRLOOM CRAFTS, author Tovah Martin and photographer Richard Brown take us back to Corgi Cottage, this time going inside to watch Tasha create the handmade items that are an integral part of her legendary nineteenth-century lifestyle. Here, surrounded by her wonderful collection of American antiques and collectibles, Tasha spins flax, dyes wool, and weaves on one of her seven looms. She dips candles, makes soap, presses cider, and dries herbs. Her Nubian goats supply milk for cheese and butter; her bantam hens offer eggs for cooking and decorating. Using only original tools and almost forgotten techniques, Tasha Tudor never has idle hands.For this book, Tasha also created a series of paintings in the style that has made her one of America"s best-loved children"s book illustrators. "Tudor would probably already be a "national living treasure" if our government bestowed the equivalent of Japan"s accolade for individuals of outstanding artistic achievement" (BOOKLIST).
