Yesterday I was perusing this book . . .
Varvara Stepanova lived from 1894 to 1958. I really adore her work and I can see a lot of it in some artists who are around now. Whether this is because she's timeless or because we're having a nostalgic blip I don't know.
Some of my favourite things are her clothes and textiles.
Most of these designs date from 1924, a good year for her I think.
She collaborated with Alexander Rodchenko for most of her life.
And it seems she managed to do most things, even book binding.
My new hero, until the next one comes along.
