Bag book

Fellow CIA artist Jitesh Patel spent last year writing a book about tote bags, and a few of mine are in it, photographed in the sunshine of Mum and Dad's garden. I can still feel the warmth now!

He's done a good job it seems. Here's the blurb from the book:
"The tote bag is an eco product for this century, destined to replace disposable plastic bags. The canvas bag has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more people have become environmentally conscious, concerned about climate change and aware of the impact of their carbon footprint. The media reminds us all to be more conscious of the world we live in, and environmental issues are inescapable.
The tote bag artworks that are most striking, inventive, ironic and original have formed the basis of this book."

Mine were designed for an American firm and were certainly popular when they originally went on sale. There are one or two left in the shop, and as well as being of incredibly sturdy manufacture (fat fabric and hardcore stitching), they do have the best inside pocket selection ever seen on a tote bag! For your lippy and pens and EVERYTHING!
